Dissertation Title:
The Politics of Paradise: Palenquera Women and Birthing the Post-Conflict Colombian Imaginary

My research investigates Black women’s activism in relation to tourism development in Colombia. I explore how women from the maroon community of San Basilio de Palenque accommodate and contest their designation as intangible heritage in order to contemplate the spaces being opened up for Black politicization in post-conflict Colombia.
