Decolonial Pedagogies Walking and Asking. Notes to Paulo Freire from Abyayala
Walsh, Catherine E.
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v34 n1 p9-21 2015
Catherine Walsh is senior professor and director of the doctoral programme in Latin American Cultural Studies at the Universidad Andina Simon Bolivar in Ecuador. Her present work is focused on the political, epistemic and ethical project of critical interculturality, and on concerns of decoloniality, taking as key the themes of knowledge, ancestrality, race and gender, education, law, state re-founding, and decolonial thought and pedagogy. For Walsh, Paulo Freire is a grandfather and ancestor of sorts; she writes here that she yearns now to once more dialogue with him. She says that she longs to tell him of her own shifts, movements, unlearnings and relearnings, since they last met. Above all, she desires to share with him her praxical thoughts on the what, why, and how of decolonial pedagogies walking and asking. It is in this context and that she writes the following notes to Paulo and to others who wish to read them.
