On June 1-5 2020, Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain), one of the centuries old centers of pilgrimage of Christendom, is hosting the Theology of Liberation and Decolonial Thought Summer School.
This summer school emphasizes the dialogue between Theology of Liberation in its broad formulation that includes Feminist, Black, Latin American, Queer and other religions understandings of the Theology of Liberation and decolonial thought as it has been articulated by intellectuals in the Americas. The originality of this school is to bring a decolonial view to Theology of Liberation that is sensitive to questions of coloniality of power, being and knowledge. The school would also like to explore a Theology of Liberation view of Decolonial Thought. What kind of contributions Theology of Liberation has made to Decolonial Thought and, vice-versa, what kind of contributions Decolonial Thought can bring to Theology of Liberation are fruitful questions that we would like to address in this summer school. What is the relationship between Christendom and Modernity? Is Modernity a full discontinuity from Christendom? What critiques can be formulated from Decolonial Thought and Theology of Liberation to the secular/religion binary of modernity?
The application deadline is March 1, 2020. Please visit the website to apply and for further information.
