ANDREA SEMPÉRTEGUI

PhD Candidate in Sociology

 

ABOUT

I am an interdisciplinary researcher whose work focuses on struggles over territory and natural resource extraction, indigenous politics, popular feminist movements, and decolonial thought in Latin America. Currently, I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology at the Justus Liebig University of Gießen in Germany and a Visiting Instructor in Anthropology and Sociology at Lafayette College in the United States. I am co-editor of a translated book by the Bolivian sociologist Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui, Ch’ixinakax utxiwa: Eine Reflexion über Praktiken und Diskurse der Dekolonisierung (Unrast Verlag, 2018). My recent publications include “Indigenous Women’s Activism, Ecofeminism, and Extractivism: Partial Connections in the Ecuadorian Amazon” (Politics and Gender, 2019) and “Decolonizing the Anti-Extractive Struggle: Amazonian Women’s Practices of Forest-Making in Ecuador” (Journal of International Women’s Studies, 2020).
