Keynote Speakers

** Catherine Walsh **

 

Catherine Walsh is a militant intellectual long involved in the processes and struggles for justice and social transformation, first in the United and, in the last more than 20 years, in Abya Yala (Latin America) and Ecuador where she has accompanied the struggles and processes of indigenous and Afro-descendant social movements.

She is currently a senior professor and founding director of the doctoral program in Latin America (Inter)Cultural Studies at the Universidad Andina Simon Bolivar in Ecuador. For 10 years she was also the coordinator of the Afro-Andean Archive and Documentary Center and presently coordinates the Afro-Andean Catedra or Chair. She has been principally focused in the political, epistemic, ethical, and existence-based project of critical interculturality and decoloniality, taking as key themes the geopolitics of knowledge, ancestrality and life and existence based philosophies, education, law, the re-founding of state, decolonial pedagogies and thought, and struggles related to the idea of gender, and the rights of nature. She is most especially interested today in the decolonial “how” and the concrete practices of an “otherwise”. She is part of the modernity/(de)coloniality working group.

 

** Enrique Dussel **

 

Dussel was born in Argentina, but since he was attacked with a bomb in his house by a paramilitary group in 1973, he was forced into exile in Mexico in 1975, and today he is a Mexican citizen. He is a professor in the Departament of Philosophy in the Metropolitan Autonomous University (UAM), Campus Iztapalapa in Mexico City and has also taught at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). He has a doctorate in philosophy in the Complutense University of Madrid and a doctorate in history from the Sorbonne of Paris. He also has a license in theology from Paris and Münster.

He is the founder with others of the movement referred to as the Philosophy of Liberation, and his work is concentrated in the field of Ethics and Political Philosophy. Through his critical thinking, he proposed a new way (a critical way) to read the universal history, criticizing the Eurocentric discourse. Author of more than 50 books, his thoughts cover many themes including theology, politics, philosophy, ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, and ontology. He has been a critic of postmodernity, preferring instead the term “transmodernity.”
