Biography: Carolina is a Visiting Assistant Professor in Women’s and Gender Studies and Anthropology. She is interested in Transnational, Women of Color, and Global South feminisms, particularly in Latin America. She has conducted ethnographic research with organizations of the Colombian Women’s Movement and among working class urban and rural women impacted by the armed conflict. Her work focuses on analyzing the development and transformation of women’s political agency and subjectivity through feminist organizing. Building on feminist and political anthropology, she examines these bottom-up processes against the local histories of colonialism, the ideologies of race, class, and gender, and the legacy of other social movements. Other research interests include women in peace-building, transitional justice, trauma and memory. Carolina has presented her work in numerous conferences including the National Women’s Studies Association, the Latin American Studies Association and the American Anthropological Association. She was a recipient of the Inter-American Foundation Grassroots Development Fellowship and was awarded the Helen Safa paper award of LASA Gender and Feminist section (2020). She is a member of the Gender, Subjectivity and Society research group at the University of Antioquia, Colombia. She co-authored the article “Peasant Women: Resistance, Organizing, and Agroecology amidst the Armed Conflict” (with Gloria P. Zuluaga – 2013) and “Colombia’s Roadblock to Peace: Between Hope and Despair” for the Syracuse Peace Council Newsletter. Her upcoming article (2021) “Perched on a Parched Hill: Feminist Strategies and Alliances in the Political Struggle for Water and Citizenship among Mujeres Populares in Medellín, Colombia” will appear in the Special Issue on Popular Feminism of Latin American Perspectives.
