Expanded Course Description
Course: Indigenous Women and Territory in Latin America. Access to arable land is one of the major problems Indigenous and rural women face in Latin America and the Caribbean. The land women can use is often of the worst quality and its possession is almost always accompanied by legal uncertainty and marked by instances of violence. For example, Indigenous women tend to be excluded from programs related to land redistribution, even when they are heads of household. The use of sexual violence and terror at the hands of private companies to forcefully eject families and women from their ancestral lands is ongoing. In this course, we will analyze, through eight case studies, how Indigenous women from Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Bolivia and Honduras face inequality in the distribution of land and confront the violence tied to land ownership. We will look at the barriers women face in systems of justice in defense of their bodies and territories, and in accessing services and resources they have a right to. We will also analyze some of the obstacles women face in getting access to financial credit and other programs that could help them to increase production on their land. This class is bilingual in Spanish and English. Some of the presentations/lectures will be in Spanish. Students can speak and write in either Spanish or English or both. It will be run as a seminar.
