You can now register (click here) to the seminar on Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 12-1 PM CT, where Prof. Clemencia Rodríguez (Temple University) will give a presentation entitled "New paths toward decolonizing research: Transformative fieldwork experiences in Northern Colombia." 

Presentation abstract: In this presentation I discuss recent shifts in my theoretical thinking as well as lessons learned while in the field. Drawing from recent research projects in northern Colombia, I reflect on lessons learned and new paths to explore. The presentation is centered around key words that include: epistemicide; decolonial research; indigenous epistemologies; communication and territory; non-extractive knowledge; and capillary fieldwork.

Dr. Clemencia Rodríguez is a Professor in the Department of Media Studies and Production at Temple University. She is known for her "citizens' media theory," a groundbreaking approach to understanding the role of community/alternative media in our societies. Her research interests include media, war and peacebuilding; feminist theory; and epistemologies of the South.

This event is co-sponsored by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, the Buffett Institute for Global Affairs, the Center for Global Culture and Communication, the Ethnography Workshop in the Department of Sociology, and the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program.
