Reflections on how critical mathematics education can offer a diverse and expanding arena to address several themes, without necessarily needing to synthesise it or blur its contours with respect to ethnomathematics. Using the perspective of “righting our world,” inspired by Freire’s sense of “writing the world,” the focus is on transforming and decolonising mathematical knowledge.
