My research interests include indigenous peoples and movements, activism, ritual practice, landscape, gender politics, climate change, environmental conflicts, political ontology, the issue of decolonization and knowledge production in relation to central topics of Political Ecology and Environmental Anthropology with a geographical focus on Bolivia and Latin America.
I am currently engaged in a comparative research project called “Indigenous peoples and climate change”, focusing on how climate change is perceived and explained differently by different actors and from different ontological lifeworlds in Latin America. My research focuses primarily on the contradictions arising from hegemonic notions of “nature” and "climate" facing indigenous knowledge and understandings of the Andean landscape and cosmos. I aim to understand how these contradictions are negotiated and articulated in the indigenized political language of, on the one hand, the Bolivian State and, on the other hand, emerging oppositional indigenous movements. The project runs over a period of four years (2014-2017) and is funded by The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences (RJ).
