The GRIP seminar Towards non-hegemonic social sciences is organising a new session !

©Reserved rights

For the last thirty years or so, debates on a global scale have seen the social sciences torn between accusations of ‘northernism’ and ‘southernism’, between unity and fragmentation, between methodological nationalism and methodological fluidity, between Western hegemony and the temptations of indigenisation. Yet little is known in France about the history and issues at stake in these discussions. Each year, the seminar will welcome various French and foreign researchers working on the issue of hegemony in the social sciences, with the aim of encouraging reflection on the future of disciplines within the framework of global, non-hegemonic social sciences.

Seminar organised by a new team for 2023-2024:
Isabel Georges (IRD-CEPED) and Marie Salaün (Université de Paris-Cité-URMIS)

14th february 2024, 5.30-7.30PM

Speaker: Mara Montanaro (Université de Paris 8 Vincennes – Saint Denis) 

Title: Decolonising the philosophy of Latin American feminist theories?

In this talk I will focus on the salient issues of my latest book “Théories féministes voyageuses. Internationalism and coalitions from Latin American struggles.” In this book I weave links from Italian heterodox Marxisms to Latin American ecofeminisms. How have these travelling feminist theories been transplanted from the space of reflection into the various Latin American feminist movements? How can we deconstruct Eurocentric ways of knowing and, at the same time, underline the limits of a feminist subject that claims to be universal? How can we build a map of Latin American feminisms so that we can envisage transnational struggles in the multiplicity of their theoretical and political programmes?


All sessions will take place in room 279F at Halle aux farines, except on 3 April when we will be in 375F, also at Halle aux farines, 9-15 esplanade Pierre Vidal-Naquet 75013 Paris.
