GAMALIEL CHURATA: ENVISIONING THE CIRCULATION OF ANDEAN EPISTEMOLOGIES IN THE AGE OF GLOBALIZATION

November 3, 2016 (All day) to November 4, 2016 (All day)

Description:

A pioneer in theorizing Andean paradigms of knowledge within emerging contexts of globalization, Churata is an intriguing figure comparable to José Carlos Mariátegui, César Vallejo, and José María Arguedas. Over the last few years Churata has become the most discussed Andean philosopher, and his literary and political writings have increasingly provoked and inspired scholars who wish to ground Andean studies within the tensions and conflicts surrounding global contexts of knowledge and decolonial indigeneities.
