Entangled Ontologies, Decoloniality and Decolonization Virtual Symposium at Virginia Tech
What productive tensions and differences exist between ontological, epistemological, and material critiques of the (post)colonial? What possibilities are opened up when we place Decoloniality, as an onto-epistemological (and political) project, in conversation with Decolonization, as a reparative project? Collaborating scholars will explore these questions from Native American/Indigenous, Africanist, Third World Marxist, Quantum, Post-human and Political Ecological positions.
Sponsored by the VT Department of Political Science (Pol. Sci.), VT Institute for Policy and Governance (IPG), & Community Change Collaborative (CCC).
Led by Desiree Poets, Laura Zanotti (Pol. Sci.) & Max Stephenson (IPG/CCC).
