  • Dilemmas of Difference: Indigenous Women and the Limits of Postcolonial
           Development Policy by Sarah A. Radcliffe (review)
    • Abstract: In this dynamic book, Sarah Radcliffe uses a postcolonial intersectional analysis to unpack and critique Ecuador’s development policy and practice. This macro-scale approach demonstrates the way in which social categories of difference in development are rooted in the power-laden colonial gaze of dominant groups, producing development policies that have never been for indigenous women. Radcliffe draws on seven years of research with two indigenous groups in Ecuador, Kichwa communities in Chimborazo province in the Andean highlands, and Tsáchila communities in the Pacific lowlands, in the province of Santo Domingo. Even as indigenous women are consistently marginalized by development policy, they ... Read More

  • Radical Cities: Across Latin America in Search of a New Architecture by
           Justin McGuirk (review)
    • Abstract: There is a great deal to be gained from looking at the relationship between geography and architecture whether in terms of an individual building, at the metropolitan scale, or anywhere in between. How space is constructed in urban landscapes has been a key site of enquiry for geographers and with exciting recent work on verticality and volume in cities this interdisciplinary relationship is likely to become even richer. From various intersections, as political, urban, or cultural geographers (to name just three) we can look to architecture to stimulate our research on the built environment and how we inhabit it. While the right to the city isn’t new in geography, the need to consider housing and social ... Read More

  • Beyond the City: Resource Extraction Urbanism in South America by Felipe
           Correa (review)
    • Abstract: South America has experienced three distinct phases of urban change since the mid-nineteenth century, beginning with the Belle Époque that brought railroads, agricultural industrialization, and immigrants primarily to Argentina and Brazil. Import substitution industrialization followed in the mid-twentieth century, with urban impacts beyond the capital cities. More recently, the forces of globalization have restructured South America’s world cities, as well as the smaller urban centers that support the region’s economic matrix. Often described as an urban donut, where the majority of people live around the coastal margins of the continent, South America has been analyzed most frequently through the lens of ... Read More

  • Ocekadi: hidrelétricas, conflitos socioambientais e resistência na Bacia
           do Tapajós ed. by Daniela Fernandes Alarcon, Brent Millikan, Mauricio
           Torres (review)
    • Abstract: Once upon a time, a continental forest covered the Amazon Basin, sheltering many of the world’s plant and animal species, and much of its water and living biomass. The world community felt special kinship with this forest and wanted to protect it. Almost daily through the 1980s and 1990s, newspapers reported the rate at which it was disappearing due to hamburger eaters, owners of chainsaws, and bureaucrats building roads through the wilderness for no good reason. Guess what? That same forest -- with its ecological wonderments, its native peoples and clearwater streams -- still stands, despite the loss of 780,000 km2 (18%) of its original cover. But a knock-out blow could be coming soon, with a portfolio of ... Read More

  • Amazonia in the Anthropocene: People, Soils, Plants, Forests by Nicholas
           C. Kawa (review)
    • Abstract: Nicolas Kawa has crafted a refreshing and quite evocative ethnography of rural life in Amazonia in the era of the Anthropocene. As I read the pages I found myself back in the Amazon doing fieldwork, on the floodplain, talking with farmers about their livelihoods, hanging in my hammock, and dealing with the assorted travails that are fieldwork in the region (WinklerPrins, Between the floods: Soils and agriculture on the lower Amazon flood-plain, Brazil, 1999). Kawa’s attention to details of the luta de vida (fight for life) that locals endure and his own vie quotidienne while doing research, bring a humanity to a place the popular media often wraps up in overgeneralizations and supersized ...

    • Abstract: Geographers have comprehensively argued that the process of generating knowledge through fieldwork is inevitably affected by the social location of the researcher in question: his or her gender, age, ability, discipline, profession, class, race, and national identity (Faria and Mollett 2016; Hunter 2009; Jackson and Neely 2015; Sundberg 2005). As Sundberg (2003) demonstrates using the example of her fieldwork in Guatemala, scholarship that ignores its own situated nature perpetuates “masculinist” epistemologies that obscure imperialist power relations allowing the generation of knowledge about Latin America. In this commentary we draw on our experiences carrying out fieldwork in Ecuador’s coastal region (la ... Read More

  • Geografiando para la resistencia
    • Abstract: Siguiendo la tendencia global, en Ecuador la enseñanza escolar de la Geografía está limitada a la descripción, enumeración, listado de accidentes físicos-territoriales o en el mejor de los casos, de procesos y fenómenos socio-territoriales. En general, el contexto de la Geografía en el Ecuador se asemeja a las condiciones descritas por Yves Lacoste en 1976, para una disciplina instrumentalizada por los poderes hegemónicos para su conveniencia, plasmada a través de una “geografía de los profesores” (Lacoste 1990 [1976]). Respecto a la enseñanza de la Geografía a nivel universitario, Hidalgo y Mayorga (2010) hacen una reseña de las carreras de pregrado cuyos programas tienen algún vínculo con la Geografía ...

  • The Incorrigible Subject: Mobilizing a Critical Geography of (Latin)
           America through the Autonomy of Migration
    • Abstract: “In the beginning, all the World was America….” “The discovery of America … [is one of ] the two greatest and most important events recorded in the history of mankind...one of the principal effects of those discoveries has been to raise the mercantile system to a degree of splendour and glory which it could never otherwise have attained to…in consequence of those discoveries, the commercial towns of Europe … have now become the manufacturers … for almost all the different nations of Asia, Africa, and America.” “The discovery of gold and silver in America, the extirpation, enslavement and entombment in mines of the indigenous population of that continent, the beginnings of the conquest and ...

  • Critical Geographies in Latin America
    • Abstract: In a recent essay exploring the intersecting terrain of geography and area studies, Sidaway et al. (2016) outline three “waves” of area studies: Imperial, Cold War, and Third Wave. The history of Latin Americanist geography can largely be couched within these waves. The role of (the discipline of) geography in the colonization of Latin America is clear and well documented (e.g. Livingstone 1992). It was in this period that environmental determinism served as a legitimation theory – a theory that scientifically legitimized unequal social, political, and economic formations (Mitchell 2000) – thus “providing a naturalistic explanation of which societies were fittest in the imperial struggle for world domination” ...

  • Space, Power, and Locality: the Contemporary Use of Territorio in Latin
           American Geography
    • Abstract: The concept of territory has been explored extensively in geography. Its classical definition stems from the geopolitical thought of Ratzel (1897), who associated the term Territorium to the relationship between state, control, and the production of borders.1 In modern Anglophone political geography and political economy, territory has become central to discussions on the modern territorial nation-state within the context of globalization, world-system research, nationalism, the social construction of a region, the significance of borders, and international relations (Taylor 1994, Agnew 2005, Sassen 2006, Paasi 1996, Ó Tuathail 1996). Political geographers have criticized conventional definitions of territory ... Read More

  • Celebrating Critical Geographies of Latin America: Inspired by an NFL
           Quarterback
    • Abstract: Normally, I have no idea when the NFL football season begins. It seems to simply appear as summer turns to autumn. In 2016, however, the start of the NFL season could not go unnoticed, nor could San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. For those who managed to miss this story, Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem during a pre-game moment of military appreciation made international headlines. At the time, his one-man protest was as an act of civil disobedience in the face of a long and recent history of police brutality and racial oppression in the United States.1 As Kaepernick insisted, “I’m not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and ...

  • The Challenge of Feminist Political Geography to State-Centrism in Latin
           American Geography
    • Abstract: In 2003, Juanita Sundberg provocatively claimed that masculinist epistemologies “predominate” in Latin Americanist geography (Sundberg 2003: 180). Sundberg argued that this masculinism has found expression in some scholars’ claims to disembodied objectivity in the research process, and in a widespread unwillingness to acknowledge social positions that facilitate our production of knowledge about Latin America. Here, we are interested in a collateral tendency of such masculinist scholarship: state-centrism. Ince and Barrera de la Torre (2016) clarify that tendencies towards state-centrism are not specific only to geographical research in/of Latin America. We suggest that the moment is ripe for reflecting ... Read More

  • “I risk everything because I have already lost everything”: Central
           
    • Abstract: Globally, women and girls make often-dangerous journeys to flee areas of poverty, violence, and environmental degradation. While on the migrant trail, many women also face high risks of sexual violence and exploitation (Muiznieks 2016). The risks faced by migrants before and on the migrant trail are gendered, yet to date too little is known about the perspectives of women migrants and the ways they manage these risks. This article focuses on the lived experiences of women migrants before and during their travel on the migrant trail from the Central American countries of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador to the United States. Feminist geographer Isabel Dyck’s work, although not referring directly to migration ... Read More

  • Beyond Removal: Critically Engaging in Research on Geographies of
           Homelessness in the City of Rio de Janeiro
    • Abstract: In August 2015, Rio de Janeiro’s then-Vice Mayor Adilson Pires laid out the municipality’s plan to achieve zero homelessness by March 2016 (Carvalho 2015). Given that according to official numbers, more than 5,000 people currently live in a “street situation”1 (hereafter, homeless) in Rio de Janeiro (SMDS 2014), this announcement was particularly alarming. In connection with the then-upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics, the time frame as well as the intention of “resolving” urban homelessness within seven months was highly suspect, especially since activists, academics, and journalists have documented significant actions of removal within the city in the context of Rio’s recent mega-events (Vainer 2011; Comitê Popular ...

  • Perplexing Entanglements with a Post-Neoliberal State
    • Abstract: An enormous abstract condor of concrete, glass, and steel soars above the humble dwellings on a roadside leaving Quito. This is the headquarters of the United Nations of South American States (UNASUR), constructed by the Ecuadorian government at a cost of over US$50 million. UNASUR was created in 2008, at the highpoint of twenty-first century socialism, and the condor stands as a symbol of Latin American liberation from the eagle of US empire. Since the election of Rafael Correa Delgado as President of Ecuador in 2006, the “Citizens’ Revolution” has cast itself as one of the more radical of the post-neoliberal experiments underway in the region. In 2008, a new constitution was framed in terms of the kichwa ... Read More

  • Turismo, abandono y desplazamiento: Mapeando el barrio de La Boca en
           Buenos Aires
    • Abstract: El patrimonio juega un papel crucial en la expresión de la gentrificación en la ciudad de Buenos Aires. Ya a finales del siglo XX, la creación del “Shopping Abasto,” fue una de las diversas intervenciones en el barrio para “transformar al Abasto, a partir de un proceso de apropiación cultural dirigida, en un barrio histórico, noble, digno de ser recorrido. Dicha apropiación cultural está estrechamente vinculada ... con una estrategia de aumento del valor económico” (Carman 2005: 80). También la creación del Barrio de “alto standing” de Puerto Madero implicó la transformación de viejas estructuras portuarias y sus zonas aledañas, mediante iniciativa del gobierno de la ciudad, que bajo una lógica empresarial, generó ...

  • Geografías de sacrificio y geografías de esperanza: tensiones

    • Abstract: Desatar las voces, desensoñar los sueños: escribo queriendo revelar lo real maravilloso, y descubro lo real maravilloso en el exacto centro de lo real horroroso de América. En estas tierras, la cabeza del dios Eleggúa lleva la muerte en la nuca y la vida en la cara. Cada promesa es una amenaza; cada pérdida, un encuentro. De los miedos nacen los corajes; y de las dudas, las certezas. Los sueños anuncian otra realidad posible, y los delirios, otra razón (Celebración de las contradicciones II–Galeano 1993: 92)Durante una entrevista en 2013, una funcionaria de la entidad encargada de la planificación para el desarrollo en Ecuador nos contó que el ordenamiento territorial buscaba ordenar estratégicamente el espacio ...
