Editors’ introduction: What an eight-foot-long mega colon taught us about attending to uncomfortable knowledges

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

To make sense of the complexity of the world so that they can act, individuals and institutions need to develop simplified, self-consistent versions of that world. The process of doing so means that much of what is known about the world needs to be excluded from those versions, and in particular that knowledge which is in tension or outright contradiction with those versions must be expunged. This is ‘uncomfortable knowledge.’ (Rayner, 2012, p. 107).
