In this co-authored essay, we reflect on how our respective research interests in Latin America have led us to engage with epistemologies of the global South. In your engagement with our writing, we hope you become curious about how critical theory emerges from these spaces, places and practices. While we don’t believe that the work these thinkers and practitioners do are exclusive to the significance of thinking and doing, we do believe that their work deserves the same critical attention as those thinkers and doers whose names are probably scattered throughout this volume. If you have further interest on this topic we provide a list of readings as a cursory introduction to decolonial thinking.
