1. Historical understanding of the correlations between knowledge and coloniality in the sphere of economy (labor, natural resources), authority (government, international relations), gender and sexuality (patriarchy, heterosexual normativity), and subjectivity (the ideology of truth, the figure of the expert, identity formation, the role of the media bringing together dominant philosophy of knowledge in the formations of subjectivity).
  2. Conceptual understanding through a set of key words already well established in the postcolonial studies and decolonial thinking.
  3. Prospective orientation: seminar instructors will encourage participants in formulating their own critical questions, designing research projects decolonizing knowledge and methodology, working on a philosophy of education geared toward decolonizing the mind.
