HUAYHUA, Dr Margarita
Margarita Huayhua has a Ph.D. in anthropology (University of Michigan 2010). She is a native speaker of the Quechua language (for whom it is still primary), whose research revolves around the cultures of the Andes, especially on problems of power and social domination in a comparative, Latin America-wide perspective. Her primary interest deals with relations of domination, and the ways in which these play out in everyday life, particularly the ideologies that permeate these interactions and serve to perpetuate social inequality and exclusion across cultures. She is interested in interactions that take place across cultures, in which distinct moralities and social ontologies help to shape relationships of hierarchy. She is also interested in language use in everyday life, racial/ethnic, and gender hierarchies, ethnography, oral history, multilingualism, and indigenous people’s movements. Among her publications are “Racism and Social Interaction in a Southern Peruvian combi” (2013) Ethnic and Racial Studies; “Everyday Discrimination in the Southern Andes” (2013) Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut: Estudios Indiana, Berlin; “Some Issues in Translating Quechua” (2009), STILLA; Public Health Policies and Indigenous Population (2005), Instituto de Estudios Peruanos; and “The Exclusion of the Runa as Subject of Rights in Perú” (1999), Bulletin de I’Institut Français d’Études Andines. Currently, she is investigating how the image of “the Indian as a problem” is constructed to (a) justify the exploitation of indigenous people, (b) undercut the self-determination of indigenous people because developmental projects like mining projects negate indigenous conceptions about natural resources. She is preparing a digital archive and a video-documentary on the life experiences of Quechua speakers who were servants in the haciendas of Peru and Bolivia, in order to document these processes. Her research is funded by the Urgent Anthropology Programme.
JONES, Dr Sue
As an anthropologist and urban planner Sue Jones has undertaken a range of social development consultancies and research work around the world but has always had a special connection with the Middle East. She has worked with a group of Bedouin women in Jordan since 1985 and recently completed her PhD – as a longitudinal study of the various impacts of a weaving project over a 20 year period on the lives of three generations of Bedouin women. Her research at Goldsmiths expands that work to look regionally at the transformation of material culture in the Middle East, particularly for nomadic groups. The focus will be on the use that has been made of aspects of their material culture within the current and international economic context, what effect this has in terms of the products themselves and how nomadic groups are involved in this process of globalisation and commercialisation.
