Doctoral Researcher Itzell Torres spent some time in Yucatan, Mexico during the tropical summer months. Luckily, she was able to conduct fieldwork despite the pandemic. Her doctoral project focuses on the socio-ecological impacts of building a solar park in Yucatan. The research is based on ethnographic fieldwork and uses theoretical approaches in the fields of anthropology and human geography to explore the intersection of large-scale renewable projects with indigenous epistemologies and energy colonialism.
