My Illustrated Ethnography

Here is a short animation about my research, in which I share one example from my honors thesis as well as some of the cool theories and concepts that guided my analysis.

My research is called, “Ecuadorian Women and Pachamama: Understanding Everyday Life in Cangahua through Narratives,” and it’s all about how women in a rural Andean community find agency and meaning in their feminized roles under the patriarchal and colonialist gaze, examined through narratives that reveal their intimate relationships with food, their community, and the land on which they live.

Presented at the UCLA Lemelson Anthropological Undergraduate Honors Conference on June 8, 2020.
