4th version of Ventana: A conference on Latin America.
5th - 7th October 2022
During the eventful recent years, the discussion about postcolonialism has interestingly turned to the idea of decolonisation, a notion that involves many and different expressions as there are of colonisation itself. Diverse cultures and peoples are facing diverse experiences of decolonisation, whether as former colonies, former colonisers, and the persisting lasting effects, systems, and traditions that linger from a past that many times doesn't feel like a past at all. For this, this year's conference is centred around Decolonial Dialogues from within and beyond the Global Margins.
Ventana 4's Special Topic
This year we are inviting all scholars working on topics related to the African experiences and narratives on decolonialism and postcolonialism, in the hope to share, compare, and nurture the studies and perspectives from both continents.

The Treehouse is located on the first floor of the Berrick Saul Building, home to the Humanities Research Centre of the University of York. This circular room is surrounded entirely by windows and the treetops beyond them, generating the feeling of being, well, in a treehouse. We have chosen this facility for our conference as means of having a circular space where we all can look at each other on the same level.
