New Book Coming 2021!

I am happy to share that I just signed my first book contract with Palgrave, Gender Studies entitled: “Decolonial Feminisms, Power, and Place: Sentipensando with Rural Women in Colombia”. This book is the result of many years of sentipensar, unlearning and imagining other worlds!

Quería compartirles mi felicidad por firmar mi primer contrato para un libro en Inglés que relata los años que he pasado Sentipensando con las mujeres rurales de Colombia.

A todas ellas les agradezco por ayudarme a desaprender, aprender e imaginar otros mundos por una vida digna y plena en el campo Colombiano. ¡La lucha sigue!
