Voices from the South: Decoloniality and Postcolonial dialogues
Time: Friday, October 11th at 4:30 pm, Location: TBA
Although some critical effort has been made during the last ten years to approach Decoloniality and Postcolonial Studies, especially after the publication of Mignolo’s Local Histories/Global Designs , most of the criticism of Postcolonialism still struggles with Decoloniality and its specificities and vice-versa. In this lecture we are going to investigate some of the reasons why these struggles generate ruptures. We will also try to point out the importance of a path for constructive and continuous dialogue between the two fields and South-South dialogue, since we consider Postcolonial Studies and Decoloniality, as Mignolo comments, “complementary trajectories with different paths”.
