The Debt and Education in Latin America Working Group at Columbia University's  Institute of Latin American Studies is thrilled to invite you to “Desendeudadas: Pedagogies of Debt Liberations,” a four-part series where scholars, activists, and artists from various Latin American regions navigate their approximations to debt in the path to social transformation. The series will question and consider assumed definitions of debt, its transversality, educational impact, as well as pedagogical dynamics and artistic initiatives to tackle debt conditions and consequences. 

The first session is called "Preguntas:” What is “debt”? How did we get (into) debt? Are all debts financial?" We will have the following speakers: 

  • Rocío Zambrana, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Emory University.
  • Verónica Gago, Professor of Social Sciences at Universidad de Buenos Aires.
  • Lucía Cavallero, Sociologist and Researcher at Universidad de Buenos Aires.
  • MC: Katerina Gonzalez Seligmann, Associate Professor, Emerson College.

The session will take place via Zoom. You can register here.
