Symposium Background

This meeting brings together an international group of scholars interested in philosophy of race and decoloniality of thought and the disciplines in which we practice. Given the relative lack of diversity and dominance of western centric thought in our disciplines, particularly philosophy, we hope that this collective will agitate for genuinely Indigenised and decolonised spaces, epistemic disobedience and the plurality toward the explanation of the human condition. In the words of the Caribbean Philosophical Association, we move also to ‘shift the geography of reason’. Here we seek not to deride western thought, rather to include all thought systems as knowledge systems to be valued, critiqued and transgressed when needed.
