Walter Mignolo

Professor of Literature and Romance Studies, Duke University

Mignolo’s research is chiefly concerned with global coloniality and de-coloniality, critical cosmopolitanism, and the grammar of de-coloniality. His current research focuses on the history of capitalism and the colonial expansion and nation building at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. He is the author of numerous books on these topics, including Local histories/Global designs (2000), The Darker Side of the Renaissance (2003) and The Idea of Latin America (2005).

Mignolo received his Ph.D. in semiotics from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes, Paris. Since 1993, Mignolo has been the William H. Wannamaker Professor of Literature and Romance Studies at Duke University, and has joint appointments in Cultural Anthropology and Romance Studies.
