SJRC Common Room, Oakes 231

Join SJRC scholars in the SJRC Common Room for an open discussion of works-in-progress! This is a wonderful chance to engage with one another’s ideas, and support our own internal work. At this session, we will hear from Science & Justice Training Program Fellow, Sociology Ph.D. Candidate, Luz Cordoba, who will discuss her dissertation that explores giant bamboo forests and their harvesters in Colombia, South America.

Luz Cordoba is a sociology graduate student at UC Santa Cruz whose interdisciplinary ethnographic work engages subjects such as STS, the Latin American Ontological turn, postcolonial critiques of race and nature, terror and colonialism, as well as political ecology and multi species ethnographies.

Of her experience at UC Santa Cruz’s cross-disciplinary approach, Gan says, “My studies were intense, particularly because they were so interdisciplinary”. “I studied alongside artists, filmmakers, theorists, anthropologists, historians, physicists, plant ecologists, marine biologists, and researchers from many disciplines.”

Gan teaches at New York University, Center for Experimental Humanities and Social Engagement (NYU Graduate School of Arts & Science), where she also leads the Multispecies Worldbuilding Lab. More on Gan’s work can be found at: http://elainegan.com/
