After presenting a historical panorama of the institutionalization of Asian studies in Portuguese and Spanish-speaking contexts, Dr. Claudio Pinheiro will examine one particular initiative committed to advancing Asian Studies in Latin America. Models of institutional initiatives will be discussed, focusing on the theoretical-critical production of the Global South, with a view to the question of scientific justice and the democratisation of knowledge.
