This Student Engagement Lecture with Chantal James includes discussion and a Hands-on Activity reacting to the La Rampa magazine, her project on decolonization. Chantal James, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is a Canadian of Guyanese and Welsh descent. A graduate of The Parsons School of Design, she is co-founder and editor of the three previous issues and current editor-in-chief of La Rampa magazine. LA RAMPA – Contributing to the archives of the Global South & fostering mechanisms of resistance. The 4th issue of La Rampa is dedicated to Portugal. This bilingual issue (Portuguese and English) intends to contribute and strengthen the public debate which has dominated Portuguese society for the last year and a half concerning Portuguese colonialism and its present day (colonial) durabilities. La Rampa wants to critically engage with this history and legacies, connecting with counter-intuitive knowledge in order to break with colonial aphasia.
