Dr. Joel Correia is an Assistant Professor in the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida. He is a human geographer whose research and teaching focus on the intersections of human rights, justice, development, and environmental change with attention to Indigenous politics in Latin America. Dr. Correia conducts field-based research in collaboration with community partners, employing a suite of mixed-methods from interviews and participatory mapping to household surveys and ethnographic writing. His current book project Disrupting the patrón: Unsettling racial geographies in pursuit of Indigenous environmental justice explores such topics in the context of Paraguay’s rapidly changing Chaco region.
