Collective Feminist Spaces: Doing Critical Geography in Latin America

Sofia ZaragocinLatin American feminist geography exists in historically strong academic centers in the region, such as Brazil, Mexico and Argentina with an incipient tradition in Colombia, Chile and now Ecuador. In countries like Ecuador, where institutionalized human geography perspectives lack, the rise of feminist geography provides the field with important reflections regarding the flow of knowledge and practice. 

In this talk, Sofia Zaragocin, associate professor at Universidad San Francisco de Quito, will address two ways in which feminist geography has entered Ecuadorian academia and activist-research circles. The first is through the work of the Critical Geography Collective of Ecuador, and the second is through an initial interest in feminist geography from different universities.
