This thesis adopts a decolonial standpoint to introduce a new theoretical framework
for ethnomathematics. There is an emerging trend in ethnomathematics,
that considers challenges posed by socio-political movements worldwide. That
trend deserves a solid foundation and this thesis is aiming to provide it. The
proposed framework calls into question the current theorization (and critique)
of ethnomathematics, by claiming a performative, non-essentialist, and interactional
approach that assumes the inseparability of socio-political concerns and
philosophical questions within the field.
