Indigeneity, Performance and Social Justice in Latin America: post-docs positions

This project will focus on indigenous protest or political movements in two or more Latin American regions, possibly in Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil or Mexico. It may involve case studies of the performance work of specific communities or significant theatre/activist groups. Alternatively, the researcher could examine the transnational circulation (particularly in North America) of a range of Latin American indigenous theatre/performance works with a social protest agenda. The general aim will be to explore the performative languages and political effects of indigenous social protest and its role in current constructions of indigeneity. The project will be informed by research on relevant issues, such as human rights, deforestation, oil exploration, environmental degradation, land reform and free trade. While the precise topic is negotiable, the researcher will be expected to engage with insights drawn from cultural geography and other theoretical writings on globalisation and environmental and social justice. Ideally, the successful candidate will have a sound knowledge of the relevant Latin American contexts and a good command of Spanish, Portuguese or an appropriate indigenous language, as well as fluency in English.
