Dr. Encarnación Gutiérrez Rodríguez (University of Giessen)
She is Chair of Sociology at the University of Giessen. Her research is concerned with questions of the local face of global inequalities, queer-feminist decolonial epistemology and critical intersectional approaches to migration and diaspora studies. In her recent work on Migration, Domestic Work and Affect (2010), she explores the interface between coloniality, feminization of labour and migration policies; affective labour, biopolitics and racialization; decolonial ethics, conviviality and the Creolization of Human Rights, through the case of Latin American ‘undocumented’ migrant women, working as domestic workers in private households in Western Europe. Further, she is interested in debates contrasting the European sociological canon with the framework of coloniality. This interest has resulted in a co-edited collection with Manuela Boatcă and Sérgio Costa on Decolonizing European Sociology (2010)
