The 2021 JLAG Lecture will feature members of GeoBrujas, a community of women geographers from Mexico that offers critical and counter-cartographic perspectives on bodies, territories, and landscapes in Latin America. The collective is designed to challenge and transform patriarchal production of geographical knowledges, understanding that cartography is a tool loaded with ideology, which their work aims to deconstruct, decentralize, and socialize at the collective and community level. With their work, GeoBrujas aims to generate spaces for reflection, practice, and critical analysis that can contribute to geographical thinking around our reality on different spatial scales, from the global to the local, from the home to the body-territory. Their work ranges from traditional academic publishing to highly praised interactive performances that seek to intervene in academic and advocacy realms, disrupting their divides, and offering new insights into dominant understandings of bodies, territory, and power.
