Event description
South-South itineraries: alternative routes for mutual learning between Latin America and Southeast Asia

About this Event

This panel discussion Chaired by SEAC Director Prof. Hyun Bang Shin is an interdisciplinary conversation on the potential of building itineraries of collaborative thinking between Southern contexts, going beyond constraints incurred by Western mediation. Recent developments in the social sciences have pointed towards the need to move beyond the domination of the ‘West’ in knowledge production.

This panel brings together scholars from Latin America and Southeast Asia whose research is rooted in such effort of theorizing “from the South”, addressing the structural power inequalities of knowledge production that tend to exclude the contributions produced by scholars working "in the South", which are often ignored or lost in translation. While establishing dialogues between regions and across different fields, it will emphasise such lost contributions with the aim of exploring potential alternative routes for mutual learning.

The panel is part of the Decolonising the LSE Week, an event that will bring together multiple conversations across the LSE & beyond on the challenges of decolonising global higher education.
