Perspectives from the South: multiple readings

Maria Paula Meneses

Online event

Moderator: Filipe Santos (CES)


The global South mirrors the diversity of experiences and knowledges that put the world in motion, where the north-south dichtomy symbolises the abissal lines at the feet of imperial philosophy, sustaining the inequalities on which the world system is based. This dichotomy comprises a metaphor that, if on the one hand, can legitimise the dominant rationality, on the other, recognises the existence of alterantive subjectivities and sociabilities that allow for the construction of a new paradigm based on the principles of solidarity and community. This talk, based on specific contextual analyses on the meaning of health, resulting from diverse heterogeneous practices, seeks to promote a dialogue about the meaning of the South, lived and experienced by the body of various subjects of knowledge.
