A lunchtime lecture
Katharine N. Farrell is an ecological economist at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and is currently a visiting professor at the Universidad del Magdalena, Santa Marta, Colombia. She is a member of Pi Sigma Alpha National Political Science Honors Society of the United States of America, an associated Researcher with the L'Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals (ICTA), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, alumus of the Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship Program, and author of numerous internationally recognized academic texts concerning questions of ecological political economy. In this special lunchtime lecture she will be exploring the forms of silencing and of expression that can be observed in the complex ecological political economy of the Sierra Nevada (white peaked mountains) and Ciénage Grande (great swamp) of Santa Marta, Colombia. Building on Bruno Latour’s new meta-physics of nature, presented in his text Politics of Nature, the complex of perspectives, actors and actions that comprise this ecological political economy will be explored as a “parliament of things”.
