Call For Papers

4th Ventana Conference on Latin America:
Decolonial Dialogues from, within and beyond the Global Margins

5th-7th October 2022
University of York, United Kingdom

The legacy of colonial empires is still present on different levels and in daily dynamics of accumulation, separation, oppression, linearity, extraction and more. This means that the end of the colonies did not imply the end of colonization. The colonial system and its embedded logics of modernity and Western thought have reproduced dynamics and epistemic violence, outlining and influencing the ways we perceive the world. Within this frame, Ventana 4 calls for papers and workshops that question, unsettle, delink, rethink or disobey colonial ideologies. This is an invitation to encounter and link dialogues that emerge and discuss the different decolonial perspectives from and with the margins. We aim to establish a bridge between thinkers, practitioners, researchers, and individuals with interest in Latin America, and for this year's special edition we are welcoming links and perspectives on the African decolonial experience. We are open to proposals that expand the ways we comprehend and interact from and with the margins. We invite you to reflect on the persistence of colonial structures, practices, and the empowerment of marginalised communities, by encouraging critical approaches and bridging the gap between different geographical spheres and thoughts.

Call for Papers and Workshops

We invite scholars and early-career researchers from the arts and humanities, social sciences, and other disciplines to partake in any of the two modalities we have considered this year: workshops and papers.

This year, the conference will be delivered in hybrid format. For those attending in person, the conference will take place from 5th to 7th of October 2022 at the University of York, located in Heslington, York, North Yorkshire, YO105DD, UK.

Abstracts for papers and workshops need to be submitted in English language with 3-5 key words.

Participation in the conference is free of charge both for attendees and speakers. The forum is open to include students from all university levels.

A participation certificate will be issued upon request.
