Marina Cadaval Narezo

On 27 November 2023, Marina Cadaval Narezo will defend her thesis which acknowledges and centres Indigenous Women from Mexico’s experiences and perspectives about how graduate education has informed their professional trajectories.

Her approach promotes a transformative and intercultural dialogue and offers pathways for feminist and decolonial methodologies and practices.

The thesis has three further purposes:

  1. To expose how professional Indigenous women are political actors who are questioning historical colonial structures.
  2. To cultivate (collective) enfleshed knowledges and strengthen coalitions as strategies for resistance.
  3. To generate intercultural dialogues and dynamics that challenge conventional academic ways in critical development studies.
