Repertoires of Knowledge in Times of Pandemic: Insight on the Fridays for Future Movement in Mexico (Mariana Arjona Soberón)

Text

The Fridays for Future environmental movement in Mexico has undergone a significant transformation process through the material limitations imposed by the pandemic. The movement went from a performance of reclaiming public spaces and flowing organically between online and offline realities to being confined to virtual means of community and movement building. Activists have innovated with the usage of digital tools to build significant spaces for knowledge production that give way to the creation of collective imaginaries of the future. In this talk I will discuss some of the strategies employed, and ways in which has transformed the identity building process of individuals involved as well as the negotiation of their relationship to hegemonic ways of knowing.
