Decolonial Translation Group

This is a great website called Decolonial Translation Group (available in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese). The site has tons of articles including some  by Ramon Grosfoguel, Nelson Maldonado-Torres, Walter Mignolo, Anibal Quijano, and many others scholars.

I would suggest  first checking out: Grosfoguel's "Transmodernity, border thinking, global coloniality"
and Quijano's "Coloniality of Power, Eurocentrism, and Latin America". They provide lots of info and a theoretical framework which other articles will build on.

The Quijano article which discusses his concept of "coloniality of power" is perhaps one of the most essential readings for Decolonial Theory. SO BEGIN THERE!

Here is the link for the Decolonial Translation English page:
