Abstract

The production of geographic knowledge in Latin America is submitted to critical judgment from the perspective of the epistemologies of the South developed by Boaventura de Sousa Santos, generating a dialogue between the sociology of absences and the production of absences in geographical thinking. It is question the spatial dimension of coloniality, proposing to integrate the concept of coloniality of being, and deepens the nature / culture and body of space dichotomies in present modern science. Subsequently, in the search for answers of the geography of absences, the urgent need of land is investigated as a critical noun of contemporary social movements that answers to the modern-capitalist-colonial-patriarchal reason of science, disputing spaces for the production of geographical knowledge-indigenous, peasants, afro-descendants,-that have been commonly denied. The conclusion of the article allow us to propose an approach to the concept of territory from ways of imagining, meaning, making and knowing with / in the territory generated by the communities, in order to contribute to the design of alternative territorialities to the prevailing modern-colonial territorial order.
