The New Polis in collaboration with the Journal for Cultural and
Religious Theory (part of The Whitestone Foundation of publications)
announces a webinar-based online conference in April 2021. The
conference is entitled “Decoloniality and Disintegration of Western
Cognitive Empire – Rethinking Sovereignty and Territoriality in the
21st Century.”

The tentative dates for the conference are April 14-15, though these
may change depending on the number of participants and the
structuring of the program.

We welcome proposals for presentations of all types that can be
introduced effectively through Zoom videoconferencing as well as more
formal academic papers which, depending on the nature and quality of
submissions, may be prepared for later publication. All
presentations, however, will be recorded and made available
eventually online in both video and written transcript form.

It should be noted that we are keen to have participants from all
backgrounds, especially indigenous communities, represented and
having a significant voice in the conference.

The leadoff speaker for the conference will be the distinguished
scholar Walter Mignolo, Professor Emeritus of Humanities at Duke
University. Prof. Mignolo will be presenting in his primary capacity
as the annual Kirk Lecturer of the Department of Religious Studies at
the University of Denver. The Kirk Lecture, like the conference, is
free and open to the public.

Send proposals in the form of Word, or Word-compatible documents (no
more than 700 words) along with one’s name, email, professional
affiliation, and telephone number (optional) no later than March 15,
2021 to: editor.thenewpolis@gmail.com
