This volume, Decolonial Pedagogies. Insurgent practices of resisting, re-existing, and re-living takes charge of overcoming the narrow ways in which one tends to think about pedagogy and decolonization. Following the great masters, Paulo Freire and Frantz Fanon, among others, this text proposes decolonization as a process and practice of re-humanization in the face of the material and symbolic structures that besiege the humanity of human beings. Decolonization, as also pointed out by the brilliant pedagogue, intellectual-activist and theoretician Catherine Walsh, involves a practice of unlearning what has been imposed and assumed and of reconstituting being again. In this sense, decolonial pedagogy is an intrinsic part of the discourse on coloniality and the coloniality of being, but it is also connected with doing, that is, with the practices of unlearning and re-learning both at a theoretical and artistic level, as well as at a political action level.
