Speaker information

Professor Sarah Radcliffe, Latin American Geography, Cambridge

Drawing on extensive fieldwork in Ecuador, this seminar examines how Kichwa and Tsachila women have come to understand, critique and offer alternatives to the successive policy models in postcolonial development. Understanding indigenous women as critical theorists of development offers the change to examine how development, in its more global as well as more local formulations, has failed to engage with postcolonial intersectional hierarchies, such as those which consistenly marginalize and disempower Kichwa and Tsachila women. The paper also addresses their perspectives on sumak kawsay/Buen Vivir as it has been formulated under the 2008 Constitution.
