This Winter 2012 (X, 1) issue of Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge entitled "Decolonizing the University: Practicing Pluriversity" includes papers that were presented at the international conference entitled "Quelles universités et quels universalismes demain en Europe? un dialogue avec les Amériques (Which University and Universalism for Europe Tomorrow? A Dialogue with the Americas)" organized by the guest editors of the volume in association with the Institute des Hautes d’Etudes de l’Amerique Latine (IHEAL) and the support of the Université de Cergy-Pontoise and the Maison des Science de l’Homme (MSH) in Paris on June 10-11, 2010. The aim of the conference was to think about what it could mean to decolonize the Westernized university and its Eurocentric knowledge structures. The contributions to this volume are, in one way or another, decolonial interventions in the rethinking and decolonization of academic knowledge production and Western university structures. Contributors include: Capucine Boidin (also as journal issue guest editor), James Cohen (also as journal issue guest editor), Ramón Grosfoguel (also as journal issue guest editor), Boaventura de Sousa Santos, Manuela Boatcã, Julia Suárez-Krabbe, Kwame Nimako, Sandew Hira, Stephen Small, Nelson Maldonado-Torres, Anders Burman, Maria Paula Meneses, and Mohammad H. Tamdgidi (also as journal editor-in-chief). Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge is a publication of OKCIR: The Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research in Utopia, Mysticism, and Science (Utopystics).
