Are encounters across the colonial divide possible in a world that is deeply divided between those who consume the lives of others and of
Earth and those who are consumed? ‘Encounters’ here denote moments of possibility opened up by the rupture from, and refusal of, what keeps us incapable of connecting with others who are radically different from us. Our text is organised as a dialogue-text-invitation to our imagined readers-listeners-fellow worlds travellers to consider the following: that ‘ learning each other’ as an onto-epistemic praxis of knowing otherwise cannot solely be explained or fully determined by its opposition to the systems of domination and the order that it confronts. The aim of our dialogue-text-invitation is not to decolonise relations between women that occupy different subject positions. We neither aim to transgress, nor resist established academic criteria. Our aim is to display the (im)possibilities of learning, speaking, listening and getting to know oneself and others as a plural self(ves), and as communal self(ves).
