Climate Coloniality: Mechanisms, Epistemologies, Spaces of Resistance

Deadline: June 15th, 2022

This virtual workshop focuses on the myriad ways and mechanisms with which the fight against climate change and new patterns of colonial domination in both the global North and South are intertwined. It is hosted by the Centre for Advanced Studies ›Futures of Sustainability‹ at the University of Hamburg, Germany, and supported by the Instituto de Bioética and the Facultad de Filosofía, of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana at Bogotá, Colombia.

The workshop forms the basis for a special issue proposal that will be submitted to an international peer-reviewed journal. For this purpose, we invite the submission of short abstracts up to 350 words. Selected participants will be invited to submit conference papers of approx. 2500 words. The contributions can be singled or multi-authored.
