More Information

The performance "Andares" sheds light on the pervasiveness of land usurpation by state-backed corporate actors within Indigenous communities in Mexico, but this practice is not confined to the geographic regions depicted in the play.

Where, why, and how have such campaigns of displacement taken place, globally, and how have Indigenous communities fought back to preserve their material needs and cultural anchors?

Explore these questions and more in this riveting talk by Bikrum Singh Gill, a scholar whose expertise includes global political economy, decolonial theory, and imperialism.
