  • Title:
    Maps for a fiesta : a latina/o perspective on knowledge and the global crisis
  • Author: Otto Maduro 1945-2013.
  • Eduardo Mendieta editor.
  • Description: Does experience shape our knowledge? -- Calmly reflecting on our knowledge -- Oppression, liberation, and knowledge -- How do we express and share knowledge? -- Rethinking our understanding of knowledge -- An(other) invitation to epistemological humility: notes toward a self-critical approach to counter-knowledges -- Migrant's religions under imperial duress: reflections on epistemology, ethics, and politics in the study of the religious stranger.
    "Beautifully written in a refreshingly direct and accessible prose, Maduro's book is nevertheless built upon subtly articulated critiques and insights. But to write a conventional academic tractatus would have run counter to Maduro's project, which is built on his argument that ignorance is masked in the language of expertise, while knowledge is dismissed because it is sometimes articulated in pedestrian language by those who produce it through the praxis of solidarity and struggle for social justice."
