TALK: AMAZONIAN WATERWAY, AMAZONIAN WATER-WORLDS

27 February 2020

A talk by Dr Giuliana Borea that explores the tensions between the Peruvian government’s newly proposed Amazonian Hydrovia Project and Amazonian indigenous communities living and working on the river.

She will highlight how this project endangers what the rivers means to Amazonian indigenous people, as she investigates the power relations of who determines what the river is and how it is managed – and to whose knowledges and realities the idea of ‘diverse perceptions’ is attributed.

Dr Giuliana Borrea is Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Sociology, University of Essex.

Please join us on Thursday 27 February, 6.00 - 7.00 pm, in Art Exchange.

Admission free - all welcome.
