CFP: Decolonial Feminisms, Nov.15 deadline

Scholars of Maria Lugones’s work or work related to it, here is a reminder that the deadline for submissions for the Toward Decolonial Feminisms conference is November 15, and individual paper and panel proposals are welcome.

This conference is an invitation to think with the work of philosopher, activist, and popular educator, María Lugones. Lugones’s work has been instrumental in calling attention to multiple worlds of sense, to the importance of coalitional emancipatory engagements, and to practice-based theorizing. Through her analysis of what she labels “the coloniality of gender” she has underscored the importance of the mutual engagement of feminist and decolonial theorizing in order to understand systems of oppression as complex interactions of economic, racializing, and gendering systems.
Speakers include: Linda Martín Alcoff, Michael Hames Garcia, Kathryn Gines, Sarah Hoagland, María Lugones, Nelson Maldonado-Torres, José Medina, Eduardo Mendieta, Mariana Ortega, Pedro di Pietro, Omar Rivera, Shireen Roshanravan, Alejandro Vallega
We welcome diverse disciplinary and interdisciplinary engagements with the work of María Lugones and are particularly interested in catalyzing dialogues between work in feminist theory and in decolonial theory. We encourage you to submit a paper for the conference. More information can be found on our proposal submission page.
