Lynch on the Latin American Turn

Good friend and blogger Thomas Lynch just posted his notes from the conference held at Birkbeck last week called “The Latin American Turn: On the Unfinished Project of Decolonisation”. I was incredibly disappointed to be unable to attend the event, especially as one of my living philosophical heroes, Enrique Dussel, was presenting.

You can read all about it here.

One brief side note: it’s interesting that when Birkbeck holds large events featuring prominent European/American speakers, they charge for attendance. But when they feature an event with an equally established group of Latin American scholars, it’s free. Interesting.

    Good point on that last remark. Like I mention in the post, it’s kind of funny that a conference highlighting how European thought ignores Latin American thought (oddly colonial) was attended mostly by Latin Americans…
