Associate Professor of Anthropology- Purdue University
Join us for a talk that charts the story of a collaborative research project that launched the first sustainable solar media center in the Kayapó Indigenous Lands, Brazil. Dr. Laura Zanotti will draw on more than 15 years of experience working with the Kayapó peoples, who govern one of the largest intact forest landscapes in the world, to talk about how design anthropology, service-learning study abroad courses, and community-based projects can serve as a nexus from which innovative solutions to wicked problems are co-created, forged, and implemented. If you are interested in indigenous studies, film studies, design, conservation issues, sustainability, gender and sexuality studies, or Latin American and Latino studies, this talk is for you!
