The point of nonreturn: The reemergence of the disavowed

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Mignolo's essay responds to the mission statement published in the summer 2013 issue of Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The essay asks: How could a journal based in the United States "decenter" itself? Can CSSAAME transcend and transgress scholarly restrictions and publish essays and statements that, rather than following scholarly norms, are made with the force and the demands of the public sphere? If "regions are sources of theory," Mignolo claims, the regions should be responsible for using the journal to articulate their views and needs rather than mediating the views and needs of Western scholarship. © 2013 by Duke University Press.
