Science Cafe at Tumamoc Hill – 'Multiple Ways of Knowing'
Presenter: Dra. Teresa Valdivia, Instituto de Estudios Antropológicos, Universidad Autónoma de México
About the talk: Valdivia will offer an intimate portrait of the Guarijío, an indigenous society where pueblos, farm fields, and pastures are spread across the region's diverse topographies. While their languages and lifeways remain firmly rooted, they also struggle with the same contemporary challenges facing rural communities across Mexico, from climate change to large-scale infrastructure projects.
About Science Cafes: Science Cafes, presented by the University of Arizona College of Science, bring the community together with University of Arizona scientists and graduate students in a casual setting. You'll learn about the latest research being conducted, get to know the faces behind the science, and have opportunities to ask questions and deepen your understanding. We have five separate cafe series at five different locations around Tucson, each with their own themes for fascinating science discussions.
