Nature, Race, and Coloniality in Austral Patagonia
Author: Mara Dicenta
I am a PhD Student in Science and Technology Studies with a background in Environmental Anthropology.
My dissertation explores the intersections of science, modernity, and coloniality within a binational project of species introduction (1940's) and eradication (2010's) in Tierra del Fuego, the South of Chile and Argentina. I am currently doing fieldwork and collaborating with the laboratory of socio-ecology at the Austral Center for Scientific Research (CADIC).
