(De)Colonization and Conscientização from Amilcar Cabral and Paulo Freire for the Theoretical Elaboration of Ideology

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In light of the current historical moment with various social movements gaining momentum (Occupy Movements, Indignados, Chilean students), this paper uses the idea of decolonization from an African context and conscientização from a Latin American context in order to shed light on class consciousness and ideology in relation to the state and hegemony in the United States. Using the idea that we are all colonized subjects of the capitalist system and as such often unknowingly espouse bourgeois ideologies, this paper embraces the idea that through education and struggle we can denounce the bourgeois in favor of building new ideologies of a more democratic and egalitarian nature. Using a historical materialist framework, the political and theoretical writings of Amilcar Cabral in a nationalist independence movement will be examined as a means to elaborate his theory and praxis.
