A partir de la acción impulsada por el colectivo NiUnaMenos llamada #DesendeudadasNosQueremos, que tuvo lugar frente al Banco Central de la República Argentina en junio de 2017, Lucía Cavallero discutirá cómo el movimiento feminista conceptualiza la cuestión de la deuda en las economías domésticas y su vínculo con la autonomía de las mujeres. Ella presentará la redefinición de la conflictividad poniendo de relieve el componente financiero y su vínculo con las violencias. Para llegar a este punto, Cavallero mostrará cómo la deuda ha sido politizada por el movimiento de derechos humanos y, en particular, el paro feminista.

Lucía Cavallero es una socióloga, investigadora en la Universidad de Buenos Aires, y miembra del colectivo feminista NiUnaMenos. Su investigación se centra en las áreas de conflicto y cambio social.

#DesendeusdadasNosQueremos! A Feminist Perspective on Debt

#DesendeudadasNosQueremos was a protest held front of Argentina’s Central Bank in June 2017, organized by the collective NiUnaMenos. With this action as a starting point, Lucia Cavallero will discuss how members of the feminist movement conceptualize debt and its connection with women. She will present a redefinition of the relationship between the domestic economy and violence, tracing how debt has been politicized by the human rights movement, and in particular, the International Feminist Strike of March 2018.

Lucía Cavallero is a sociologist and researcher at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, and member of the feminist collective NiUnaMenos. Her research focuses on areas of conflict and social change. 

Co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies and the Arts Research Center.

Please note: This event will be in Spanish.
