How are different colonial structures organized around the world? What kinds of relationships do they hold with racism and racial formations? Can we understand colonialism in the same manner everywhere? Or are there multiple colonialisms that confront and overlap with one another in distinct and distant geographical contexts? What are the contributions of Abya Yala (Latin America) to these post- anti- and decolonial conversations circulating in the world? This workshop seeks to generate an intimate and grounded space for conversation about the potential intersections between different anticolonial and antiracist traditions in “the Americas,” including internal colonialism, ch’ixi and Nepantlismo, abigarramiento/motley societies, coloniality of power/knowledge, critical Indigenous studies, and settler colonialism, in an effort to engage with the deepest political problems of our continent.
