Join us to celebrate the launch of the new book: Decolonize and Depatriarchalize the Social Sciences, Memory, and Life in Chiapas, Central America, and the Caribbean. This book is a collection of writings by indigenous and Afro-descendant women and feminists, sexual dissidents, revolutionaries, and social activists from Chiapas, Central America, and the Caribbean. It includes results of anthropological studies, original and collaborative research, creative theoretical reflections, epistemologies, ethics, essays, and poetry.
In this roundtable and book presentation, we will focus on this book as an exercise of an intergenerational, interregional, and transnational alliance. And as a work of resistance for more critical, feminist, anti-racist, dissident, and anti-capitalist social sciences and humanities, in defense of life and territories.
Live interpretation will be available.
