Biography

I am a senior researcher at the Centre for Social Studies, University of Coimbra, integrating and co-coordinating the Research Group on Democracy, Citizenship and Law (DECIDe). I also integrate, as a permanent member since 2008, the Study Group on Solidarity Economy at CES (ECOSOL/CES). I was an invited Visiting Professor in Brazil (Federal University of Southern Bahia), having been part of the academic staff of the PhD Program in State and Society (PPGES/UFSB). Previously, I was part of the research team in Alice Project - Strange Mirrors, Unsuspected Lessons, an international project funded by European Research Council, coordinated by Boaventura de Sousa Santos. I hold a PhD in Communication and Culture from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (2004) and a Master's Degree from the same institution (1999). I have worked as senior lecturer for almost 20 years, having had a long academic career at the State University of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. After lecturing, working and writing on consumption issues for 14 years, ten of them in Portugal, I have dedicated the most recent six year-period to subaltern economies, particularly the peripheral and indigenous ones, from a feminist perspective. I have worked on subjects such as poverty and social inequalities and have dialogued with organisations and citizens' collectives on a large set of issues, namely: complementary and transition currencies, exchange fairs, community economies, education for sustainability and sustainable development goals (2030). My main research and lecturing interests are: postcolonial feminisms, postcolonial and decolonial studies on consumption and Economics, feminist economics, feminist aesthetics, poverty and social inequalities from an interseccional perspective, Global South within Europe, other economies.
