Of course! Keep the questions and discussions coming!
Hell Hammer
30:56
what are some examples of a country that has been thru several iterations of colonialization? and...are there any countries is south America that have escaped the cycle of colonialization?
Akemi Nishimura
32:19
the definition "colonization" is similar "remote acculturation"?
Daniel Toner
34:06
Is there a (sub)genre of indigenous metal?
Hell Hammer
39:36
seems like many countries in Africa are in a similar situation
Symmetry (they/them)
40:47
i was about to ask if there’s a difference between “colonialism” and “colonization,” or are they used interchangeably?
Symmetry (they/them)
42:28
kind of piggybacking off Akemi’s question here
CHRISTOPHER F
42:28
'Remote acculturation proposes that intermittent and/or indirect contact with a geographically and historically separate culture, as facilitated by modern globalization mechanisms, can also produce acculturation (Ferguson & Bornstein, 2012)'
Joe Diaz
44:29
Thanks Akemi!
Symmetry (they/them)
45:12
in response to Akemi, my understanding is that colonialism includes imposing culture, but also goes beyond it to imposing government, imposing economy, imposing power, etc.? correct me if i’m wrong please
Akemi Nishimura
47:07
@CHRISTPPHER Actually my research is the similar with Furguson one. Please read it if you like, quite interesting (Ferguson)
Akemi Nishimura
47:15
@Joe thanks a lot!
Hell Hammer
48:13
example: Texas is only 7% of U.S. area
Daniel Toner
48:44
Does the work on a new constitution in Chile hold out hope for decolonialization?
Akemi Nishimura
53:20
@symmetry thank you for your comment. The big difference between South America and Japan is the points you mentioned. Japan was not apparently imposed everything from other country (US). But, we were totally imposed after WW2. That is the point I would like to ask speakers, because every cultural and historical background differs.Even Japan is located in Global North. But, we have quite unique cultural values.

Symmetry (they/them)
01:18:11
i love the music too, not just the subject matter
Joe Diaz
01:20:57
Feeling similar connections to the impact of the US census on the definitions of race in Puerto Rico specifically too
CHRISTOPHER F
01:21:48
do that any time
CHRISTOPHER F
01:22:20
i think i mentioned them yesterday or last week, but Ill Nino feels like a real fit for this stuff, too.
CHRISTOPHER F
01:23:23
Sepultra, Soul Fly, etc - i feel like a lot of bands who integrate their 'indigenous' cultural identity have that anger against powers that be, and a 'rise up' mentality
ABRAHAM VEGA
01:24:56
Don't forget the Downset band, saludos!!!
Joe Diaz
01:25:15
Yes, Chris! Many parallels globally -> colonialization happened in a lot of places
Joe Diaz
01:26:43
and continues to happen*
Hell Hammer
01:29:07
Brujeria also uses a lot of machete in their imagery
ABRAHAM VEGA
01:30:24
In Mexico, one of the bands that raised its voice against colonialism was the rap metal band Resorte, although it was not metal properly, with its song América, it caused a great impression on other groups at the end of the nineties. Saludos Nelson.
Joe Diaz
01:30:55
