Explores how different societies make sense of and develop a knowledge of the physical and animate world, and what it means to be human(e) within it. Opens up trans-hemispheric conversations between cosmologies (ways of being, seeing, ordering, and making worlds) and epistemologies (ways of knowing, producing, and ordering knowledge). Focuses on peoples marginalized by European/white colonization and slavery across the world, who we refer to as the “Global South.”

This is a team-taught class with distinguished decolonial and indigenous scholars from across the world. Each will lead one seminar per week.
