African Studies Global Virtual Forum: Decoloniality and Southern Epistemologies–Maria Paula Meneses
PSU African Studies
Maria Paula Meneses

The Africa Studies Virtual Forum 2021-22, led by Dr. Sinfree Makoni, seeks to decenter hegemonic epistemologies and to decolonize the Western canon to facilitate other ways/waves of knowing. Through a series of online conversations, participants in the forum will challenge the notion of the "universal truth" and discuss how the only truth that is universal is the truth of complexity. To decolonize knowledge, epistemic perspectives need to be pluralistic in ontologies, cosmologies, and insights, and the emergence of Epistemologies of the South is one such response to the decolonial turn.

In this session, Maria Paula Meneses gives a talk on "Food as Knowledge: Interconnecting the Global South".
