Claudia Delgado’s views on her visiting research stay at GIRES!
My first contact with GIRES began as a result of my participation in the International Conference “Poverty: Interpreting the World’s Dividing Line” held in October 2020, in which the Institute openly showed its commitment to combating inequality and created space for dialogue around this global challenge. I am writing my dissertation around global poverty from a philosophical and cultural point of view and I also share this commitment, in addition to other GIRES values that made me feel at home at this institution. Therefore, I am glad to have become a member of GIRES team.
Since 24th January 2020, this membership was strengthened by the start of my online research stay at GIRES, officially recognized by my University (University of Oviedo, Spain). Due to the travelling restrictions related to COVID-19, this research stay will not take place in GIRES headquarters but from a distance. Nevertheless, I will work harder to narrow the distance, learning from and sharing the results of my research with other GIRES members. Therefore, I will carry out three main activities as a visitant researcher in GIRES. Firstly, I will take part in the next Conference on Humanitarian Organizations. Secondly, I will prepare a workshop on poverty and identity. Thirdly, I will conduct research on the idea of historical “compensation”, that came to my mind during the last GIRES activities around oral memory. Besides, I hope to enhance my dissertation through conversation with other researchers from GIRES that specialize in political and racial violence. Finally, I would like to thank GIRES team for its availability and for its willingness to support young researchers like me to build a career.
GIRES welcomes you Claudia!
