You are invited to join an exploration of lifeways motivated by desire for human and ecological health, harmony, pleasure, community, and sovereignty. Over the past century, people and places across Latin America have been shaped by national and international efforts toward “development,” conceived as economic growth and assimilation of western institutions and lifestyles. Concomitant loss of biological and cultural diversity, together with increasing environmental degradation, provoke reappraisal of radically diverse paths toward wellbeing. In sync with Latin American Studies Association 2018 theme Latin American Studies in a Globalized World, we consider local visions and practices in the context of south-south conversations and south-north learning and power relations.
