This discussion is part of the Decolonizing Humanities Project.


Carlos Rivera Santana (Assistant Professor of Hispanic Studies) is a Latin American/Caribbean cultural studies scholar specializing in Indigenous studies, visual culture and decolonial theories. He critically examines histories of colonization and looks at their counter-discourses seen in Global South knowledges expressed in visual culture and literature, especially those produced from Indigenous ancestral worldviews. Robin Ellis (Assistant Professor of German Studies) considers issues of migration and intercultural communication from 1945 to the present, with a particular focus on translation. She teaches courses on topics such as Germany as a multicultural society, urban life in Berlin, European borderlands, and postwar literature.
