‘Creating and Contesting Knowledge at the Museo Migrante’

Co-authored with my GlobalGRACE project colleague Deya Clériga Morales, this book chapter adopts an experimental writing approach that emphasises interactivity and imagination while playing with creative epistemological devices. In it, we delineate the activities and ethos of MuMi (Museo Migrante) – an itinerant museum and educational forum exploring migration with communities in Chiapas, Mexico – and in parallel present a critical analysis of the museological stance of the National Anthropological Museum towards Indigenous communities in Mexico today.
