Shifting the Geo-Graphy and Bio-Graphy of Knowledge

“Shifting the Geo-graphy and Bio-graphy of Knowledge” is a three-year project sponsored by the Center for Global Studies and the Humanities. The title of the project comes from two different sources. One is the concept of “Geo-politics of Knowledge” introduced as a key concept of Philosophy of Liberation in Latin America in the mid 70s, and the other, “Shifting the Geography of Reason,” was introduced as a key founding concept of the Caribbean Philosophical Association in 2002. This project, emerging from the Humanities, is not limited to this domain but attempts to engage in conversations with other areas of academic knowledge as well as with knowledge production in social movements and institutions (e.g., human rights), in the U.S. as well as across the globe.
