  • [pic here] Teresa Velasquez (CV): My research explores the cultural and political significance of mineral conflicts in the Ecuadorean Andes. I am interested in new forms of social protest that rally human and non-human entities into political struggles against mineral extraction and towards a greater democratization of development practices. My work underscores the tensions and contradictions of social and economic reforms under a popular, socialist government.  My research interests include the state, social movements, environmentalism, Andes, gender, and indigeneity.
