Summer School “Decolonizing Knowledge and Power: Postcolonial Studies, Decolonial Horizons”

The Summer School “Decolonizing Knowledge and Power: Postcolonial Studies, Decolonial Horizons” is organized by the Center of Study and Investigation for Decolonial Dialogues in Barcelona, Spain, July 11- July 21, 2016.

The international Summer School, “Decolonizing Knowledge and Power,” aims at enlarging the analysis and investigation of the hidden agenda of modernity (that is, coloniality) in the sphere of knowledge, power and being. Who is producing knowledge? What institutions and disciplines legitimize it? What is knowledge for and who benefits from it? How is our social existence colonized and how to think about decolonization of being? What power hierarchies constitute the cartography of power of the global political-economy we live in and how to go about decolonizing the world? Decolonizing knowledge and power as well as de-colonial thinking is the priority of this summer school.

Our summer institute will question basic assumptions engrained in the idea of modernity, progress, and development and will encourage thinking and living in search of non-eurocentric, non-corporate social and human values. Doubts about such capitalist, patriarchal and Eurocentric horizons, are also generating distinct horizons of knowledge and understanding that the seminar will address as “decolonial horizons.”
