Panel: Genealogies of Feminist Anthropology in Central America and the Caribbean
Conveners: Marisa G. Ruiz Trejo, Ana María Mata Parducci, Lina Rosa Berrio Palomo
Feminist anthropology is part of the profound transformations that the discipline has undergone since the 1960s. It has been configured as a particular field of work, with topics of interest, concepts, categories, methodological reflections and specific ethical dilemmas. In this sense, this symposium is interested in presenting some reflections to fill an academic gap, through the work of anthropologists from different universities, countries and generations of Central America and the Caribbean. We are seeking to bring together colleagues interested in delineating the genealogies of feminist anthropologies in their countries by putting into dialogue the epistemological and methodological models that have been useful in each country and region, with the personal trajectories of the researchers, linked to the contexts in which the production of knowledge has been elaborated, some of them marked by the complaints regarding the androcentric logic and the multiple violence in the academic, activist and political and social organizations. The symposium aims to collectively reflect on the specific circumstances that Central American and Caribbean feminist anthropologists have experienced, from the pioneers to the younger generations, as well as to analyze the barriers and obstacles they have had to overcome and the strategies they have used to do so in different stages but, in particular, we are interested in highlighting their contributions to the shaping of feminist anthropologies in the region.
