Another warrior walks on…; Ideas in movement…

[And yet another warrior, and powerful thinker in movement, has walked on, this morning :

Anibal Quijano walks on…

[I had the privilege of meeting Anibal a few times at meetings of the World Social Forum, over the years.  Each time was memorable – not least for his memorable, and ferocious, eyebrows !   And where I now feel that I paid far too little attention to his compelling ideas…

[Here, for those who didn't know of him, is a brief summary, mostly courtesy Wikipedia :

Anibal Quijano, who was born in 1928 and walked on this morning, May 31 2018, was a Peruvian sociologist and humanist thinker, perhaps best known for having developed the concept of the ‘coloniality of power’.  His body of work was influential in the fields of post-colonial studies and critical theory.  Most recently, he was Professor of the Department of Sociology at Binghamton University, New York.  Before that, he held several positions as a visiting professor in the social sciences at universities in Latin America, North America, and Europe : The Maison des Sciences de l'Homme (Paris), University of São Paulo <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_S%C3%A3o_Paulo>, University of Puerto Rico <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Puerto_Rico>, University of Hannover <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Hannover>, Free University of Berlin <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_University_of_Berlin>, National University of Ecuador, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UNAM>), Universidad de Chile <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universidad_de_Chile>, Latin American School of Economics (ESCOLATINA), and George Washington University <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Washington_University>. 

He wrote numerous books and publications on colonialism, politics, democracy, globalisation, and other social issues, including the following :

2010 : 'Coloniality and Modernity/Rationality', Chapter 2, pp 22-32, in Globalization and the Decolonial Option, ed. by Walter Mignolo and Árturo Escobar, Routledge <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Routledge>, London & New York

2006 : 'Estado-nación y movimientos indígenas en la región Andina: cuestiones abiertas'. En OSAL, Observatorio Social de America Latina, año VI, no. 19. CLACSO, Consejo Latinoamericano de Ciencias Sociales, Buenos Aires

2002 : 'The Return of the Future and Questions about Knowledge'. Current Sociology <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Current_Sociology>, vol. 50. Thousand Oaks, London: SAGE Publications, New Delhi.

2000 : Coloniality of Power, Eurocentrism, and Latin America. Nepantla, No. 3, Durham, North Carolina: Duke University Press.

            If there are others on this list who knew him and can add to the above, please do do so.

            With thanks to friends on the Crisis of Civilization for this news.  In memory; may you walk on in peace, Anibal !
