The CERLAC Salon Series 2020-2021 presents: ‘Cañari Children and Cows: Thinking Ch’ixi Temporalities in Ecuadorian Andes’

The CERLAC Salon Series 2020-2021 presents:
Dr. Cristina Delgado Vintimilla (Faculty of Education)
Thursday November 26, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
‘Cañari Children and Cows: Thinking Ch’ixi Temporalities in Ecuadorian Andes’
In this presentation Dr. Delgado Vintimilla considers the intersection of multiple and, at times, seemingly conflicting temporalities in Andean childhoods. Drawing on Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui’s scholarship on Andean sociology and on her ethnographic research with Cañari families she shares the multiple ways in which Cañari families’ and children’s relations with cows and milk production are fueled by both capitalist and Andean temporalities that cannot be thought as opposites. These temporal relations do not create confusion or limiting binaries but are, Delgado Vintimilla proposes, itinerant. This presentation brings an insight into how Cañari children’s and cows’ collective lives are knitted within ch’ixi temporalities.
The talk will be followed by a Q&A session.

About the CERLAC Salon Series:
This Salon Series is meant to offer students an opportunity to connect with CERLAC Faculty (Fellows) through informal monthly gatherings. Fellows will speak about their research during the salon in their own choice of format (e.g. paper, ad lib, thoughts, stories, questions and answers). Attendees will have the opportunity to listen, ask questions, offer comments, and engage the Fellows in discussion.
