Daniel Cuty Ninahualpa (Year 2)
I’m an Ecuadorean who has always been curious about how ideas could shape concrete circumstances regarding human life. I currently have two strong interests that I want to explore further which are social movements and narratives. I have always found it fascinating how initiatives coming from the civil society can challenge or put limits on power dynamics coming either from the state or economic elites. I’m currently researching the Ecuadorean indigenous movement and how its composition has been transformed from neoliberal times towards the rise of pink tie governments. In terms of narratives, I film documentaries with the purpose of understanding specific social contexts through the personal experience of its characters.
