Epistemologies of the South IV - The end of a cognitive empire: what comes next?
June 21 to 29, 2018, Curia (Portugal)
This is the fourth edition of the Summer School Epistemologies of the South. The first edition took place in 2014 and was founded on a broader political and intellectual initiative, the project ALICE – Strange Mirrors, Unsuspected Lessons: Leading Europe to a new way of sharing the world experiences.
Seeking to re-think and renovate socio-scientific knowledge in light of the Epistemologies of the South, proposed by Boaventura de Sousa Santos, with the objective of developing new theoretical and political paradigms of social transformation, ALICE ran from 2011 to 2016, was coordinated by Boaventura de Sousa Santos and financed by the European Research Council (ERC), one of the most prestigious and highly competitive international financial institutes for scientific excellence in Europe.
