The conference brings together in an online webinar format scholars from around the globe to discuss what is meant by such increasingly familiar terms as "decoloniality" or "decolonization." It will explore the relationship between these themes and issues of nationality, territoriality, and sovereignty as they concern the struggles of indigenous peoples.
As premier global theorists such as Walter Mignolo, Catherine Walsh, and Tink Tinker (all of whom will take part in the conference) have emphasized, decolonization is not simply a political and cultural matter. It is also a profound epistemic problem, insofar as it is the minds along with the lands of native peoples who have been colonized. Increasingly the 21st century has come to be marked by the slow disintegration of what Portuguese theorist Boaventura de Sousa Santos dubs the "cognitive empire" of Western thought that has been the drive epistemic force behind global neoliberalism.
