Manuel Tironi (Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile)

In the Salar de Atacama, northern Chile, different forms of doing and knowing geology meet. In this talk, Manuel Tironi reflects on the relation between Indigenous sovereignty, geological knowledge, and the (im)possibilities of onto-epistemic alliances in the context of extractivist harm to Lickanantai (Atacameño) worlds.
