Biography
Jamie is a PhD Candidate in Latin American Literatures and Cultures. His research focuses on social environmental issues in the Andes and Amazon and how narratives of symbioses between humans and nonhumans can teach us to relearn a capacity for awareness towards our more than human world that often disappears in the rhythms of extractive capitalism. In investigating these themes, his dissertation incorporates various modes of storytelling that include Aymara, Kichwa, and Quechua film and music.
