Maria Lugones Decolonial Summer School

Recalling Earth: Decoloniality and Demodernity
Course Directors: Prof. Walter Mignolo & Dr. Rolando Vázquez

Recalling Earth and learning worlds and worlds-making will be the topic of chapter 14th of the María Lugones Summer School that will take place at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven.

Grounded on the basic concept of decolonial thinking: that there is no modernity without coloniality, the summer school will be an exploration on a demodern and decolonial Recalling Earth and learning and making worlds. Decoloniality complemented with demodernity are two necessary options departing from eurocentrism.

The 14th edition of the Summer School will be devoted to generate communal conversations in search of demodern and decolonial horizons of learning worlds and worlds-making.

As in previous year, we do not teach, the participants learn. Through a mixture of lectures, organized conversations, workshops and informal conversation, the learning experience sketches forms of communal learning: each of us, faculty and participants, know something that the other do not know. The school attempts to work on the communal knowledge participants brings every year. The 2023 version invites us to learn together towards recalling Earth and learning worlds.
