In Honor of Maria Lugones The Decolonial Knowledges Research Initiative Presents Decolonizing Epistemologies A Conversation with Latinx Philosophers.

Speaking at this event are PJ DiPietro, Mariana Ortega, Chela Sandoval, and Gabriela Veronelli.

The round table “Decolonizing Epistemologies: A Conversation with Latinx Philosophers” will discuss the politics of epistemological decolonization, particularly with respect to philosophical and/or spiritual thought. The dialogue will engage a deeper understanding of how the project of multiple/plural philosophies/worldviews/ways of knowing directly contribute to a campus and classroom (and more broadly, social/national) climate of knowledge and respect for POC cultures/being. The Decolonial Knowledges Working Group will be reading the work of all four philosophers as well as the work of María Lugones. After a Q&A session with the DK group and the panelists, the dialogue will be opened to the public. This panel is dedicated in honor of María Lugones.
