Macarena Gómez-Barris is author of The Extractive Zone: Social Ecologies and Decolonial Perspectives that theorizes social life, art, and decolonial praxis through five extractive scenes of ruinous capitalism upon Indigenous territories (Duke University Press, 2017). Her recent book Beyond the Pink Tide: Art and Political Undercurrents in the Americas (UC Press 2018) asks us to imagine politics beyond the nation state. She is working on a new book project called At the Sea’s Edge: Life and Extinction in the Era of the Colonial Anthropocene. She is Founder and Director of the Global South Center (GSC) at Pratt Institute. The GSC is a space for critical inquiry that centers experimental modes of thinking, being and doing. She is currently also Chairperson of the Department of Social Science and Cultural Studies.
