Resource Extraction, Relationality and Resurgence: Towards a Body Land Pedagogy, A Keynote Lecture by Prof. Isabel Altamirano-Jiménez
Keynote Lecture by Prof. Isabel Altamirano-Jiménez (Canada Research Chair in Comparative Indigenous Feminist Studies, University of Alberta, Canada)

"Resource Extraction, Relationality and Resurgence: Towards a Body Land Pedagogy"
My presentation explores the nexus resource extraction, embodied experiences, and Indigenous resurgence. Focusing the anti-mining struggle of the Zapotec community of Calpulalpan in Oaxaca, Mexico, I examine how Indigenous women challenge and imagine the resurgence of Indigenous communal practices in transformational ways. Learning with Indigenous women, I outline a body land pedagogy that centers the ontological relationship between the human and non-human worlds but also the present, conscious, and engaged actions that uphold and maintain Indigenous relationality.

This Keynote Lecture opens the international conference, “The Poetics and Ethics of ‘Learning With’: Indigenous, Canadian, and Québécois Feminist Production Today”, organized by the Department of Teacher Education (English Section) at NTNU (Norway) and the Canadian Literature Centre (CLC) at the University of Alberta (Canada).
