»Voices of Disorder, Voices of the Academy. A talk with Yuderkys Espinosa«
As part of the dialogue within European Academies about the decolonization of knowledge and studies, the theorist Yuderkys Espinosa Miñoso is invited to talk about her career within and outside the academy. In this presentation, Espinosa will share reflections about her experience that as a black Caribbean migrant subject she had overcome in academic spaces.
This talk will be useful for critical students and academics in the field of social sciences, and especially for those who work, or would like to work, with a decolonial, anti-colonial, and anti-racist feminist perspective. We would like to reflect…What does it mean to be a decolonial thinker and a decolonial artist in a western colonial space like the academy? Which are and how we can use the resources that we have to develop our practices in white predominantly space? What type of negotiations is necessary and/or meaningful in order to redirect our learning in a decolonial way?
The lecture is strongly recommended to Black, Indigenous and People of Color, latinxs, meztizes living in Europe. But we also welcome every student willing to work on self-criticism in relation to their individual position within the academy, the social context, and global geography.
Mariama Diallo will introduce the evening with her reflections and thoughts on her experience as an African woman in the Academy of Fine Arts.
We will end the evening with a performance of Moenani Sisters.
The event will be moderated by Lia Kastiyo-Espinósa.
