Dr Laura Rodriguez Castro


I am a Colombian academic, writer and photographer based in Queensland, Australia. 

I am interested in the intersections of decoloniality, feminisms and rurality, and visual, participatory and arts/research methodologies. I also combine my research practice working as a teacher and senior research assistant.

My doctoral research was a visual participatory project with rural women in Colombia. 

I believe in the power of place-based resistances and insurgencies and explore these in my photography, writing, and social research. My work particularly focuses on projects with rural women.
