Please join us for this talk by Ailynn Torres Santana, a postdoctoral fellow at the International Research Group on Authoritarianism and Counter Strategies at the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation and a visiting scholar with the Freie Universität Berlin and the Latin American & Caribbean Studies Program at Northwestern University.

Torres Santana's research project analyses the authoritarian and conservative tide in Latin American through a feminist lens and proposes a regional and globally-connected analysis of three fields: government measures, religious fundamentalisms, and feminist responses.

Torres Santana is a social scientist who has been a visiting professor at the University of Havana (2006–2012), FLACSO Ecuador (2016–2018, 2020), and the University of Barcelona (2015, 2018), and a visiting scholar at the University of Massachusetts (2018) and Harvard University (2019).

She is a member of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation’s regional project “The Future Is Feminist.”
