CLLAS Graduate Grantee Presentation

María Belén Noroña, a graduate teaching fellow in the Department of Geography, will discuss alternative ways in which indigenous communities produce understandings of territory when material control over such resources is threatened by mining activities. In collaboration with an indigenous community in the Amazon of Ecuador, Belén explores how socio-spatial relations based on reciprocity, collaboration and solidarity contribute to secure collective means of survival. The process of securing such means of survival require collective action operating at several scales and with multiple actors producing new understandings of territory that extend beyond material relation between the population and their physical space. This talk is part of the Geography Department’s Tea Talk Series. Refreshments will be offered at 3:30 P.M. Belén’s research was funded in part by a Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies grant.
