Perspectives on rights, resistance, and resilience from Indigenous adult literacy learners in Mexico

Date: Friday 28th October 2022

Time: 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Venue: Online via Zoom

The 21st century has brought about rapid changes across political, economic, environmental, cultural, and social landscapes. Within these changing contexts, the enduring social and educational inequalities amongst Indigenous peoples—represented by many distinct social and cultural groups around the world—remains a significant global challenge.

In this seminar based on her award-winning doctoral research, Dr Sanchez Tyson will explore the role and meaning of literacy within the context of an Indigenous language educational model for adults in Mexico and discuss how processes and spaces of learning remains sites of negotiation, contestation, exclusion/inclusion, resistance, and opportunity.

The seminar will be of interest to those who are interested in further discussing and addressing issues of structural inequalities, learner agency, and the diversity and politics of Indigenous knowledges and ontologies in Latin America and the global South.
