[2022] The Encounter of Knowledges

Epistemic Dialogues in Unequal Contexts

In presence (Berlin)

Sobre o evento

The universal interest in material culture has always offered a place for the encounter of knowledges from different cultures. But  how do these knowledges circulate in a complex social context? How have our practices of knowledge impacted the knowledges of others and vice versa? Margarita Valdovinos  addresses these questions on the bases of her research in Berlin and among the Náayeri of Northwest Mexico.

When: Wednesday, 14.9.2022, 18.00 h
Location: Simon Bolivar Hall. Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut, Potsdamer Straße 37, 10785 Berlin

This event is organized by the Ibero-American Institute, in cooperation with Mecila.


Margarita Valdovinos is Associate Professor at the Instituto de Investigaciones Filológicas, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). Her research interests are the ritual poetic practices of the Náayeri People of Western Mexico, the ethnographic and phonographic collections gathered between 1905 and 1907 by the German anthropologist, Konrad Theodor Preuss, and the linguistic and cultural practices of Yucatec Maya in urban and semiurban contexts.
