From Europe to South America, there seems to emerge what we can call ‘an epistemic awakening’ which consists in advocating and implementing new forms of knowledge based on local histories and experiences. In other words, many minority groups in Europe and in the Global South refuse `to be told’. Western-centric understanding of the world or an epistemicide of the indigenous knowledge is now being countered by theorists, artists and activists from all over the world.

The presentation will examine how some academic projects and art expressions of globally marginalized communities from different places of the world (Europe, Africa, South America) are engaged in decolonizing Western knowledge as a further step for imagining and building democratic and non-imperial post-colonial societies.

We shall see that the notion of decoloniality is gaining much success in European universities as it challenges not only the content and modes of production of Western knowledge but it also seeks to dismantle the neo-colonial apparatus still existing in former colonies as well as within the former-colonizer states, such as the United Kingdom or France.

Kamal Ahamada is an educator, traveler, and activist who grew up in France, studied in Denmark and England, and is now based in Vilnius, where he currently works as a teacher. His areas of academic interests include: Postcolonial-decolonial theories, Pedagogy of liberation, alternative education, arts and cultures of resistance, psychoanalysis and race, transgenerational and colonial trauma, solidarity politics, Africa and Middle East politic and theology of liberation.
