Biography:

A Voice for the Amazon: Media, Language, and Cultural Survivance in Napo, Ecuador is a book and multimedia archive that jointly explore the historical and contemporary development of a multiplatform, multilingual mediascape in the Ecuadorian Amazon. This mediascape implicates numerous media technologies (radio, television, film, and social media), historical and contemporary linguistic groups (such as Lowland and Highland Kichwa (Quichua), as well as Wao Tededo, Chicham, and Tukanoan), and local and transnational discourses about Indigenous languages, environmental knowledge, and territorial sovereignty. A Voice for the Amazon also includes a community-oriented digital archive, which collects the diverse media projects produced by and about the residents of the Ecuadorian Amazon, which makes academic research more accessible to the people with whom it was conducted.
