Afro-Ecuadorian Community Archaeology with Daniela Balanzátegui

May 16 @ 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM


This presentation is part of a virtual series of lectures on archeology and heritage from Northwestern University’s Latin American & Caribbean Studies department and Evanston Public Library.

Daniela Balanzátegui is an assistant professor at the University of Boston in the area of historical and collaborative archaeology of the African Diaspora in Latin America. Her research is mainly focused on Afro-Ecuadorian historical strategies to survive slavery, structural racism, and gender discrimination. Her investigation is based on the examination of material culture, ancestral territories, historical narratives, and oral traditions of Afro-descendant populations. Since 2012, She has developed a community-based archaeological project in collaboration with Afro-Ecuadorian communities from a feminist standing point of view. The project provides a space for ethical and respectful work in heritage management, public and community archaeology. She obtained her doctoral and master’s degrees from the Department of Archaeology at Simon Fraser University, Burnaby-Canada.
