(des)articulaciones Conference: "(In)visible Cosmovisions: Dialogues in Afro and Indigenous Latin America and the Caribbean"

October 22, 2011 - 9:00am - 6:30pm
Speaker/Participants: 
Keynote: Catherine Walsh (Universidad Andina Simon Bolivar)

Department of Hispanic Languages and Literatures, the Center for Latin American Studies, the School of Arts and Sciences, the Humanities Center, and the Graduate Program for Cultural Studies

With the emergence of subaltern and postcolonial studies over the past quarter century, scholars have increasingly shifted attention to the political, epistemic, and poetic force of indigenous and Afro-descendent communities in Latin America and the Caribbean.  Nonetheless, the potential analogies and resonances between the worldviews, textualities, and recurrent political struggles of these populations remain largely overlooked and underexplored.

(Des)articulaciones 2011 seeks to create a productive dialogue between these perspectives and explore new possibilities for decolonizing conceptual frameworks in the 21st century.  This two-day conference brings together graduate students from various departments across the United States whose research engages with these issues.
