Miguel Gualdrón Ramírez holds a B.A. and M.A. in philosophy from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and. PH.D. from DePaul University (Chicago). His work focuses on the interconnection between history, politics, and aesthetics in Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx contexts, in a philosophical attempt at approaching these topics collectively. He is particularly interested in aesthetic theories and practices (such as literature and film) of these regions of the world that critique colonial forms of self-understanding and self-expression and contribute to new epistemologies of resistance. His work investigates as well a European, philosophical tradition on politics, history and aesthetics as challenged by the existence of the Americas. He is currently working on a manuscript entitled Decolonial Aesthetics: Theory and Praxis from the Americas.
