Decolonizing European Sociology builds on the work challenging the androcentric, colonial and ethnocentric perspectives eminent in mainstream European sociology by identifying and describing the processes at work in its current critical transformation. Divided into sections organized around themes like modernity, border epistemology, migration and 'the South', this book considers the self-definition and basic concepts of social sciences through an assessment of the new theoretical developments, such as postcolonial theory and subaltern studies, and whether they can be described as the decolonization of the discipline. With contributions from a truly international team of leading social scientists, this volume constitutes a unique and tightly focused exploration of the challenges presented by the decolonization of the discipline of sociology.

'A superb and timely project with a stellar cast of scholars. The collective argument advanced here shows that to open the social sciences was an important step but it was only half of the story. What is needed is to decolonize the social science which this volume initiates by shaking the foundations of its very core: by decolonizing European sociology.' Walter Mignolo, Duke University, USA 'Decolonizing European Sociology offers a vital contribution to the ongoing debate over the Eurocentric epistem that has informed the formation of the disciplines. The brilliant interdisciplinary essays examine the field of Sociology as historically embedded within discourses of European coloniality and modernity. Building on the insights of postcolonial, feminist, and queer theories, this groundbreaking volume proposes new and provocative modes for decolonizing the production of knowledge about Europe.' Ella Shohat, New York University, USA
