In our essay, we advance a preliminary outline of the decolonial-hispanophone curriculum and extend an invitation to South-South dialogue between students, teachers, or activist-educators from different intellectual traditions of the geo-regions called “the Americas”. After sharing some definitions, we raise the issue of curricular-pedagogical work within historical colonies and present coloniality. In this way, we provide a preliminary outline of the decolonial-hispanophone curriculum as a dimension of a transnational, contextual, and relational decolonial project. Based on the outline, we theorize three emerging historicized concepts: (a) the historicity of decolonial thought, (b) mestiza conceptualization, and (c) communality/pluriversality. We conclude the essay with an invitation to South-South transnational dialogue.

Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway. Trondheim, formerly Trondhjem or Nidaros, is an old city in central Norway. It is a key city in Norway, its skyline dominated by the beautiful cathedral and its urban life dominated by the university. The center of Trondheim has a beautiful location within a large river meander where the river meets the wide Trondheimsfjord.

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is Norway’s leading technical university and contributes greatly to the city’s social and economic profile. Of Trondheim’s 160,000 inhabitants, 25,000 are NTNU students.

The city celebrated its 1000th anniversary in 1997, but contrary to popular belief, Trondheim was not so much a center for the Vikings as it was founded at the end of the Viking Age. However, it was the religious center of northern Europe during the Middle Ages and a vital center for North Atlantic trade, giving it many characteristic mansions and harbor houses. From 1152 until the Protestant Reformation, Trondheim (or Nidaros as it was called) was the seat of the Archbishopric of Norway (present-day Norway plus Iceland, Orkney and Shetland). The old name Nidaros reads “mouth of the river Nid”. For centuries, Trondheim was the northernmost merchant city in Europe, which gave it a special “end of the world” feeling. This also resulted in a more extroverted international culture than many other Scandinavian cities at the time. Locals like to call their city the historical, religious and technological capital of Norway.

“Mi punto de partida para este ensayo sobre pedagogía feminista, es partir de mi incomodidad al (des)ubicar el género como categoría universal, la imposición de género y desarrollo a través de la historia colonial y cómo la comprensión occidental del conocimiento fractura e invisibiliza otras formas de ser en comunidad. Estos tres puntos de partida indican la inquietante naturaleza de escribir sobre el privilegio de la raza, la edad, la clase y el género cuando escribo sobre la despatricarcalización del conocimiento y sobre cómo mi conocimiento está incrustado y encarnado en una comprensión histórica occidentalcéntrica del género, los cuerpos y la opresión. Y para complicar aún más la voz autoral, me veo constantemente cuestionada por mi complicidad en los sistemas de privilegio. El ensayo se basa en el aprendizaje colectivo de años de acciones y conversaciones con feministas, activistas académicas y estudiantes, y en el compromiso con textos, películas, vídeos y arte inspiradores que me han introducido en otros conocimientos.

Fredriksten Fortress is a fortress in the town of Halden in Norway. It was an important strategic point for the defense of Norway against Swedish military offensives during the 17th and 18th centuries. Nowadays it is an important cultural center of Halden due to its characteristic works of art of the period and the museums that are in its interior.

Despite being bombarded, the fortress could not be taken. The advance of the Swedish troops under Charles John surrounded the fortress of Fredriksten, leaving a reduced force that tried to force its surrender, but the fortress was defended by the entire garrison. After the convention of Moss, Fredriksten was handed over under Swedish sovereignty. The old flag of the fortress from 1814 was taken by Swedish troops and was not returned to Norway until 1964, the flag is preserved in a museum located inside the fortress.
