Desendeudadas: Pedagogies of Debt Liberations
The series features the work of scholars, activists, and artists about debt and social transformation. Approaching debt as a transversal condition differentially impacting Latin America, the series aims to re-familiarize debt beyond its financial realm. In this light, the everyday, the educational, and the artistic emerge as indebted terrains to collectively dis-indebt.
