This thematic issue of Tabula Rasa aims at presenting the scholarly diversity around the issue of the colonial and decoloniality seen all around the world. In Latin America, the decolonial debate has been so far focused in the European colonial expansion. This issue intends to extend the decolonial canon by bringing in new women’s voices and colonial experiences occurring in the Western imperial landscape and beyond. Thus, this issue will gather a set of papers making visible the varied colonial expansionisms in order to open a dialogue that helps us to identify divergences, parallels, and points of intersection between European colonialism and other empires worldwide. By doing this, we will widen the scope of colonial analysis, in order to significantly enhance our current understanding of the colonial world. Likewise, we will bring in the voices of decolonial feminisms and their contributions to this debate.
