Latinos(as) y la descolonización del imperio estadounidense en el siglo XXI
Tabula Rasa , 2007,
Abstract: despite appearances, the united states empire finds itself in an accelerated decay. there are many fights, such as anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, and anti-patriarchic taking place in the interior of this empire, invisible to the peoples that live through the ominous consequences in latin america, africa, asia and middle east. this article presents the dilemmas that the united states empire faces related to the growth of the latin populations and the decolonialization from its interior. in a few decades, white people in the united states will be a demographic minority. current racial minorities will be the majorities; latinos will be the majority of the minority groups. the empire is struggling with new forms of apartheid (neoapartheid) and de-colonization of white supremacy. because of their strategic importance, the upcoming fights will be acute and defining for the future of all humanity.
Hacia un pluri-versalismo transmoderno decolonial
Tabula Rasa , 2008,
Abstract: this article discusses the concept of the universal in the western philosophical tradition and proposes other, decolonial ways to think about uni-versality as pluri-versality, based on the thinking of aimé cesaire, enrique dussel and the zapatistas. the first part discusses the concept of “universal” from descartes to marx, covering kant and hegel. the second part discusses the other concept of universal which is proposed by aimé cesaire from an afro-caribbean decolonial perspective. the third part analyzes the concept of universal implied in the notion of transmodernity proposed by enrique dussel. the fourth part discusses the difference between postmodernity and transmodernity using as an example the postmodern notion of hegemony proposed by laclau and the transmodern and pluriversal notion of politics proposed by the zapatistas in the other campaign. finally, the article discusses the implications of all this for the leftist debate about the vanguard party versus the rearguard movement.
Hacia un pluri-versalismo transmoderno decolonial
Tabula Rasa , 2008,
Abstract: Este artículo discute el concepto de Universal en la tradición filosófica occidental y propone maneras otras, decoloniales, de pensar la Uni-versalidad como Pluri-versalidad a partir del pensamiento de Aimé Césaire, Enrique Dussel y los zapatistas. La primera parte discute el concepto de Universal desde Descartes hasta Marx pasando por Kant y Hegel. La segunda parte discute el concepto otro de universal que desde una perspectiva decolonial afro-caribe a propone Aimé Césaire. La tercera parte analiza el concepto de universal implicado en la noción de transmodernidad propuesto por Enrique Dussel. La cuarta parte discute la diferencia entre posmodernidad y transmodernidad usando como ejemplo la noción posmoderna de hegemonía propuesta por Laclau y la noción transmoderna y pluriversal de la política propuesta por los Zapatistas en la Otra Campa a. Finalmente, se discuten las implicaciones de todo esto para el debate de la izquierda acerca del partido de vanguardia vs. movimiento de retaguardia.
Les dilemmes des études ethniques aux états-Unis The dilemmas of ethnic studies in the United States: identitarian multiculturalism, disciplinary colonization, and decolonial epistemologies De la Universidad a la Pluriversidad : pensando desde la experiencia de los Estados-Unidos

Abstract: Ethnic studies in the United States represents a contradictory space within which two hegemonic discourses (identitarian multiculturalism and disciplinary colonization) and a counter-hegemonic one (decolonial epistemologies) condense and enter into debate and struggle. In contrast to other parts of the world, ethnic studies in the United States emerged as a part of the civil rights movement for racialized minorities. In the late 60s and early 70s, a number of student strikes and university occupations were organized by these racialized minorities, leading to the creation of Afro-American, Puerto Rican, Chicano, Asian, and Indigenous studies programs all over the country. This epistemic insurgency was key to the opening of spaces for professors from ethnic/racial groups suffering discrimination and with non-Western epistemologies in areas which were up to that point monopolized by white professors and students and Eurocentric epistemologies which privileged the “ego-politics of knowledge”. But, I am now questioning the appropriateness of creating ethnic studies departments/programs if these will merely be reduced to studying the sociology of race, the anthropology of ethno/racial identities, the history “of” (not “from” or “with”) blacks, the economics of the insertion of indigenous labor, etc. To colonize ethnic studies through the Western disciplines does not constitute an innovation in the field of knowledge. It was already possible to do so through the respective academic disciplines, and it requires neither ethnic studies departments nor programs. It would be a different story if ethnic studies departments or programs proposed to open themselves up to transmodernity, that is, to the epistemic diversality of the world, and redefine themselves as “transmodern decolonial studies,” offering to think “from” and “with” those “others” subalternized and inferiorized by Eurocentered modernity, offering to define their questions, their problems, and their intellectual dilemmas “from” and “with” those same racialized groups. This would give rise to a decolonial methodology very different from the methodology of the social sciences and the humanities (Smith 1999). It would also imply a transmodern dialogue between diverse ethical-epistemic projects and a thematic internal organization within ethnic studies departments/programs, one based on problems (racism, sexism, xenophobia, Christian-centrism, “other” epistemologies, Eurocentrism, etc.) rather than either ethnic/racial identities (Blacks, Indigenous, Asians, etc.) or Western colonial disciplines (sociology,
Los dilemas de los estudios étnicos estadounidenses: multiculturalismo identitario, colonización disciplinaria y epistemologías decoloniales1
Universitas Humanística , 2007,
Abstract: ethnic studies in the united states were academic areas conquered by the fights of racial minorities on the inside of the empire in the decades of the 1960s and 1970s; since their foundation these studies have been attacked because of their eurocentricity. this field of knowledge has made fundamental contributions to the understanding of racial, sexual and gender discrimination. today there is a debate inside of ethnic studies that might be relevant to other countries as well. on the other hand, ethnic studies are conflicted between interdisciplinary studies; meaning colonized studies of eurocentristic academic disciplines and decolonial studies focused on transdisciplinarity, decolonialization and transmodernity. in this article, the debate inside the united states ethnic studies is discussed in detail, along with its consequences for the decolonialization of knowledge.

Del imperialismo de Lenin al Imperio de Hardt y Negri: ?fases superiores? del eurocentrismo
Universitas Humanística , 2008,
Abstract: this article presents a critique of the book empire by hardt and negri. the article is based on the author?s investigation of the decolonialization of the paradigms of economy-politics. the first part of the essay is a summary of the basic concepts used in the book, such as coloniality, body politics and geopolitics of knowledge, as well as the colonial difference. then the essay continues with a critical discussion of lenin?s linear, eurocentric vision in regards to "imperialism", and marx? stage vision in regards to the processes of "accumulation of capital". finally, the article discusses how hardt and negri?s book empire is written with a linear, eurocentric narrative that conceals coloniality of power processes that take place on a world-wide scale.
LA DESCOLONIZACIóN DE LA ECONOMíA POLíTICA Y LOS ESTUDIOS POSTCOLONIALES: Transmodernidad, pensamiento fronterizo y colonialidad global
Tabula Rasa , 2006,
Abstract: this article discusses the epistemic implications of the de-colonial turn of the decolonization of the ?global capitalism? concept, as it has been used in the paradigms of political economy and cultural studies. other terms that are discussed include ?colonization of power?, ?border epistemologies? and ?transmodernity? to start thinking not in ?new utopias?,but rather in ?other utopias? based on a different cartography of global power relationships of the ?world-system europe/euro-northamerican modern/colonial capitalist/patriarchical?. the article argues that there is a necessity to use the aforementioned concept (even though it is more extensive) and to abandon the category of ?capitalist world-system? or ?global capitalism?.
