Tiokasin spends the full hour with Vanes­sa Macha­do de Oliveira Andreot­ti, author of Hos­pic­ing Moder­ni­ty: Fac­ing Human­i­ty’s Wrongs and Impli­ca­tions for Social Activism” (North Atlantic Books, 2021). Vanes­sa is a Lat­inx pro­fes­sor at the Uni­ver­si­ty of British Colum­bia and holds a Cana­da Research Chair in Race, Inequal­i­ties and Glob­al Change. Vanes­sa began her career as a teacher in Brazil in 1994 and has since led edu­ca­tion­al and research pro­grams in coun­tries includ­ing the UK, Fin­land, Aotearoa/​New Zealand, Brazil, and Cana­da. She works across sec­tors in inter­na­tion­al and com­par­a­tive edu­ca­tion, par­tic­u­lar­ly focus­ing on glob­al jus­tice and cit­i­zen­ship, Indige­nous and com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment, sus­tain­abil­i­ty, and social and eco­log­i­cal respon­si­bil­i­ty. Her research exam­ines rela­tion­ships between his­tor­i­cal, sys­temic, and ongo­ing forms of vio­lence, and the inher­ent unsus­tain­abil­i­ty of moder­ni­ty. Vanes­sa is one of the found­ing mem­bers of Ges­tur­ing Decolo­nial Futures Col­lec­tive (decolo​nial​fu​tures​.net) and Teia das 5 Curas, an inter­na­tion­al net­work of Indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties most­ly in Cana­da and Latin Amer­i­ca. She cur­rent­ly col­lab­o­rates with with these groups to direct research projects and learn­ing ini­tia­tives relat­ed to glob­al heal­ing and well being in times of unprece­dent­ed challenges.
