Drs. Maria Elena Garcia and Jose Antonio Lucero (University of Washington) will be presenting on their research in Peru. This research should be of great interest to students in the CSOC department. Here’s the abstract:
While the extraction of natural resources has a long history in Peru, this panel provides new approaches to understanding human projects to “develop” Amazonian and Andean resources. María Elena García will explore the impact of the commercialization of Andean animals, especially the guinea pig or cuy. José Antonio Lucero will examine conflicts between Indigenous communities and extractive industries (including mining, oil exploration, and filmmaking).
