This course offers an in-depth study of decolonial theories emerging from the Global South,
specifically Latin America. We will examine the history and turns of postcolonial and
decolonial ideas and their implications for developing critical methodologies,
epistemological justice projects, and research/praxis in gender and sexuality studies.
We will study foundational concepts such as ‘coloniality of power,’ the ‘matrix of colonial
power’ (Quijano), and ‘coloniality of gender’ (Lugones). We will reflect on the processes and
consequences of the imposition of Western epistemologies, specifically in relation to gender
and sexual identities and histories. In this way, we will learn about decolonial philosophies
and how to be self-reflexive about our engagement with knowledge and critical about our
positions in the world.
