Agency beyond liberalism: women community leaders in low-income, high-risk urban settings in Medellin, Colombia

Speaker: Lirio Gutiérrez Rivera, Universidad Nacional de Colombia
22 September, 15:30-17:00
Activity: CEDLA lecture
Venue: CEDLA, Roetersstraat 33 | 1018 WB Amsterdam - 2nd floor, room 2.02

Women community leaders display a capacity to respond in high-risk urban settings based on care and on their ability to produce territory. In doing so, women community leaders reweave the social fabric of their neighborhoods and ascribe a political dimension to care that is not framed within feminist projects of emancipation or transformation.
