YEHIA, Elena. De-colonizing Knowledge and Practice: Dialogic Encounter Between the Latin American Modernity/ Coloniality/Decoloniality Research Program and Actor Network Theory. Tabula Rasa [online]. 2007, n.6, pp.85-114. ISSN 1794-2489.

This paper seeks to establish a conversation between two novel frameworks for the critical analysis of modernity: actor-network theory, and the Latin American Modernity/ Coloniality/ Decoloniality perspective. In addition, this paper examines the remaining problems within both frameworks from the perspective of a decolonial project, and suggest ways in which these problems can be addressed by relocating both frameworks within modernity and by shifting some of the frameworks' epistemological and political implications, especially in terms of refusing to decode subaltern knowledges.

Keywords : decoloniality; actor-network theory; modernity/coloniality; anthropology of modernity.
