Postcolonial Seminar: The decolonial turn in writings of Enrique Dussel and Anibal Quijano

Postcolonial Research Group announces April meeting on the decolonial turn (Żurawia 4, room 104). It will be hosted by Alexis Angulo Martinez.
We are living in a world where the cognitive experience of the white male has been imposed on others. This violent univocity claims its universality by dispossessing the Other of his/her own subjectivity, and his/her ability to trust own cognitive experience.
By focusing only on the Eurocentric experience, the West is not only being oppressive with the Other, but also denying itself the chance to know reality. This latter can only be achieved in the encounter with the outside, in recognizing that each of us is finite.
In this encounter, the seminar will introduce Enrique Dussel’s Philosophy of Liberation, a Latin American philosophy as well as Anibal Quijano’s Coloniality of power. For the decolonial scholars in Latin America, modernity goes along with capitalism and coloniality.
Alexis Angulo is a PhD student at the Doctoral School of Humanities at the University of Warsaw. A graduate of Polish Philology as part of Individual Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Silesia. Mexican by origin. His doctoral thesis concerns coloniality in Polish literary relations with Latin America.
