Project description

The project interrogates the role of enduring colonial legacies of knowledge/power in Argentina by tracing the conditions of possibility for the making of ‘spiritual’ as political by the Argentine feminist Green Tide movement. The dissertation addresses contemporary issues over social movements, decolonisation, and subalternity.
