Giuliana Borea: Amazonian Waterway, Amazonian Water-worlds
Art Exchange, 6:00- 7:00pm
A talk by Giuliana Borea that explores the tensions between the Peruvian government’s newly proposed Amazonian Hydrovia Project and Amazonian indigenous communities living by and with the river. Exploring the work of indigenous artists, 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.
This talk is based on an article Giuliana Borea co-authored with Uitoto indigenous artist Rember Yahuarcani.
Dr Giuliana Borea is a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Sociology, University of Essex.
