The June 2021 issue of Critical Studies in Teaching and Learning (CriSTaL) includes seven articles, bringing to the fore the following themes and concerns: Inclusivity, Feminist pedagogy, Colonialism, Practices of decoloniality, Professional identity, Knowledge pluralism and Academic success. The key themes of this issue bring into relief, are the ongoing, entrenched, and variable inequalities exposed and produced by the Covid-19 pandemic that has formed the terrible and terrifying background to our lives over the last 18 months. While none of the papers deal directly with the pandemic, the critical thinking they provoke concerns the problems and possibilities of higher education in these profoundly difficult times. Their contents attend to subjectivity, power, relationality, ethics, and learning and teaching in contemporary neo/post/colonial times. Four book reviews conclude this issue.
