Call for papers: ‘Indigenous and Afrodescendant Movements and Organisations
in Latin America. Resisting, Performing and Re-purposing Dominant
Categories’


http://www.alternautas.net/blog/2019/9/18/call-for-papers-indigenous-and-afrodescendant-movements-and-organisations-in-latin-america-resisting-performing-and-re-purposing-dominant-categories

Alternautas, an academic peer-reviewed blog, is calling for contributions
for a special issue on ‘Indigenous and Afrodescendant Movements and
Organisations in Latin America. Resisting, Performing and Re-purposing
Dominant Categories’. Deadline: November 20th 2019.

From the 1990s, the so called Latin American multicultural turn has given
rise to changes and amendments in national constitutions concerned with
inclusion of indigenous communities and afrodescendant populations in
political and social processes (Cottrol and Hernandez, 2001). However, the
actions of Indigenous peoples’ and Afrodescendant social
movements/organizations in Latin America are embedded within a set of
disciplinary and regulatory technologies shaped by international
organizations, Nation states, market and globalisation processes. For
example, political commitment to Indigenous and afrodescendant movements is
limited by neoliberal development agendas with “multiple scaled
transnational practices and discourses” (Radcliffe 2002, Hale 2005). In
other cases, so-called postneoliberal states such as Bolivia and Ecuador
prioritized developmental agendas linked to an ideal of a homogenising
nation state (Postero 2017). As a result, these movements are often forced
to translate themselves and their different and complex ontological
understandings of the world in order to counterbalance the hegemonic,
colonial, and patriarchal capitalist spaces that increasingly dominate
their communities.

These limitations suggest a lack of major actions transforming the
political participation context under which these movements act (Muteba,
2012), reproducing the difficulties of developing a vision of the political
space that goes beyond interpretation and representation (Lefebvre, 1991).
Mastering other languages, categories, and codes can sometimes lead to
effective resistance and successful outcomes, but they can also lead to the
expansion and reproduction of colonizing structures. Refusing them through
disruption and silence can sometimes promote the reproduction and continual
reinvention of worlds, but it can also lead to their marginalization and
diminish the chances of democratic participation. We welcome papers that
ask how these challenges are being confronted by Latin American indigenous
and afro-descendent movements? How are indigenous identities fixed and
mobilized by the international organizations, states and the market, and
performed or resisted by indigenous and afro-descendant communities in
order to further their interests and contest or challenge different
ontological views? How are these fixed identities expressions of state
racism? How indigenous and afro-descendent movements react to an increasing
racist violence coming from the state in the region? How are these
movements intersected by multiple oppressions (such as class and gender)
beyond ethnicity and race? And how do academics working with these groups
deal with challenges of interpretation, translation and communication of
the ideas and realities that they encounter in their continual interaction
with these communities?

Articles can address (but not be limited to) any of the following issues:


   - Historical approaches of indigenous peoples and afrodescendant
   socio-political interplay in Latin America
   - Intersectorial power relations between State institutions,
   International Organizations, market forces and indigenous peoples and
   afrodescendant social movements
   - Indigenous peoples and afro-descendant movements’ intersectional
   practices and realities
   - Cultural translation processes in environmental, political, commercial
   and social issues
   - Boundaries, narratives and discourses on transnational interactions of
   indigenous peoples and afrodescendant social movements.
   - Political power structures and indigenous peoples and afrodescendant
   social movements policy frameworks
   - Market dynamics, participation and productive economic alternatives
   - Education, ethnicity and knowledge building
   - Aesthetics of representation from indigenous peoples and
   afrodescendant social movements

The call is open to contributions from different disciplinary approaches,
from sociology, anthropology, and political geography to architecture, law,
history, economics or political science. They are expected to be of a
length between 3,500-4,000 words and should include two (or more) pictures
of your choice, eligible for unlimited reproduction. Please send your
contributions before October 15th 2019
