TorresDescolonizacion

Nelson Maldonado-Torres: In 2011, the Universidad de la Tierra in Chiapas, México, collected some of Maldonado-Torres’s essays on decolonial theory in this anthology. The essays included in this compilation deal with the current validity of decolonialization, and develop the idea of a decolonial turn. Maldonado Torres argues that the decolonial attitude as well as the reason are fundamental parts of what is here presented as decolonial turn, which proposes that decolonialization (and not modernity) is a project that is not yet accomplished on a global level.
