Tania Pérez-Bustos HS on Decoloniality and Coloniality

Dear friends,

Maria Vlachou (postdoc working on the intersections between decolonial feminisms and critical migration studies) and Isabel Garca (PhD student focusing on the intersection of autism and social assistive robots in the co-creation of what does it mean to be labelled as autistic) are happy to invite you to our second seminar in coloniality and decoloniality. Tania Prez-Bustos will be with us presenting "North-South Collaboration in Research put into Question".

English: In her seminar she invites us to think with her around the questions of how is it for a woman scholar from the south to be a PI in a project with scholars from the "global" north? How colonial and gender practices unfold into international "collaboration"? In this conversation she will talk about geopolitical and gendered divisions of labour in research as well as on embodied practices of fieldwork and project managing collaboration. Her presentation is based on/inspired by her own experiences as a woman/feminist from the global South who has engaged in North-South research "collaborations". ' Tania Prez-Bustos is an anthropologist and holds a PhD in Education. She is a feminist scholar working on technologies and knowledge dialogues. Her current research interests include handmade textiles as technologies of knowledge and care. She is also a co-founder of Artesanal Tecnolgica and she is Associate Professor at the School of Gender Studies at the National University of Colombia. She is interested in transdisciplinary work from which to explore methodologies that enable transformative research and pedagogies.
