Event Description

Full Description:
The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers, scholars and intellectuals who are actively engaged in developing critical thinking situated in the Global South. The focus therefore is to open and continue a space and a conversation with Indigenous and other border thinkers in Australia and other regions of the Global South in order to find pathways toward developing decolonial epistemologies and practices from a Southern perspective.

We live in a world where the discourse of coloniality puts peaceful coexistence in danger and risks the existence of life on Earth. South-South Dialogues wishes to create a collegial space where writers, artists, intellectuals and researchers from the Global South can contest this discourse by thinking through the issues that connect them. In 2015, the first South-South Dialogues resulted in the exchange of indigenous and border views from Australia and Latin America, as well as the Global South. It also resulted in a special issue of the Australian Journal of Indigenous Education. In 2017, we encourage scholars to address questions such as, what does it mean to view and understand the world from the South? What are the commonalities and contrasts in South critical perspectives? What makes them different to North critical traditions? How have concepts like race been used to produce the global South?
