CN10 - Transforming Design: Indigeneity and Mestizaje in Latin America

Conveners: Gabriela Hernández, Maria Rogal, & Raúl Sánchez

This conversation seeks to explore how we might create a truly global discipline and profession of design. Focusing on their experiences working with Indigenous and mestizo communities in Latin America, the convenors will discuss ways to conceive of design theory, research, practice, and education that can level the playing field on which Indigenous and non-Western perspectives encounter the discipline’s legacy epistemologies, which are rooted in Western modernity and its attendant coloniality.
