    Amy Kennemore, Ph.D.

    I have a PhD in Anthropology from the University of California, San Diego and an MA in Latin American Studies from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, where I was also born and raised. My work deeply collaborative—with local communities, with Indigenous legal activist intellectuals, with networks of autonomous collectives, and with students and academics with whom I’ve worked, learned, organized, and published.  Much of my teaching and research focuses on the important tradition of community education and Participatory Action Research (PAR) as a tool for policy innovation (most recently for a National Agenda against Racism and All Forms of Discrimination in Bolivia) and as a tool for collective action (with co-coordinator migrant organizers for the Escuela Libre y Labritorio de Arte, or ELLA, a free school by and for migrant youth (El Comedor and Contra Viento Y Marea collective) Zona Centro, Tijuana.
