Indigenous Media and Political Resistance in Latin America

Friday 25 April, 2.30-6:00 pm
SG1, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, CB3 9DT

This event is jointly organized by the Centre of Latin American Studies and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Cambridge.

Chair: Professor Brad Epps, Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Cambridge.


The principal objective of this conference will be to discuss the emergence of Indigenous Media in Latin America. We will discuss how indigenous peoples use both traditional and new media to combat discrimination, advocate for resources and rights, and preserve their cultures, languages, and aesthetic traditions. We will also contextualize these new resistance strategies in the broader discussion about indigenous epistemologies and ways of knowing, and consider the potential indigenous theorizations for the decolonization of the social sciences.
