About María Fernanda

I am a social anthropologist from Oaxaca, México, focusing my research and practice on the webs formed by labour, technologies, territories, and development in contemporary Mexico and Central America. I approach these topics through feminist political ecology and political economy perspectives, exploring them in academic research as well as artistic and pedagogical contexts. I coordinate Magma, an independent research-centred press and radio project devoted to climate and economic justice. I also enjoy organising workshops and working with children using tools as radio, photography, video, and cartography.
