A conference on Art History, a conference co-hosted by the Department of Art History at Columbia Unviersity and the Institute for Latin American Studies.

“Decoloniality and the Politics of History” brings together art historians, anthropologists, critical theorists, sociologists, and artists to create a multidisciplinary conversation. You can find the full program here, and pasted below.

This series of panels places the frameworks by which we produce historical knowledge at its center. Questions we seek to focus on include: How to address the colonizer/colonized relationship not as a universal binary but simultaneously in its global and local specificity? How to provincialize the West without ignoring the lived realities of its hegemony? What to make of the increasing problematization of hybridity and syncretism? And how does a decolonial framework help us understand the relations between socio-economic and cultural forms?
