Second Call for submissions
III Latin American Congress of Political Ecology
DECOLONIAL INSURGENCES AND EMANCIPATORY HORIZONS: POLITICAL ECOLOGY AND LIBERATION
Salvador, Bahia, Brazil | March 18-20 2019
The Latin American Network of Political Ecology, thorugh the organizing
committee of the III Latin American Congress of Political Ecology, invites the academic
community and social movements to participate in this meeting, which will be held in
Salvador, in the state of Bahia, Brazil, from March 18th to 20th, 2018 — NEW DATES.
The main theme of the congress deals with the turbulent times faced by Latin
America, with the emergence of authoritarian and neoliberal governments and the
acceleration of extrativist policies and the desnationalization of natural resources.
Facing this reactionary turn, decolonial insurgences and struggles emerge, regathering
emancipatory horizons, new resistance ecologies that reconfigure the liberation praxis.
Within this urgent political context, the Congress aims to create a space for encounters
and convergences between emancipatory thought and practices, between academy,
social movements and activism.
The congress is organized by the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA) and the
Federal University of Recôncavo da Bahia (UFRB), with the research group
Undisciplined Environments and the support of Clacso’ Working Group on Political
Ecology from Latin America Abya Yala, gathering a network of collaboration with other
Brazilian and other latin-american universities and social movements.
