Dr Prates is a medical anthropologist working with Indigenous People from Lowland South America, mainly with the Guarani-Mbyá collectives from far south Brazil and Argentina. She is interested in women’s notions of person, body-territory and living well, including topics such as midwifery practices and its entanglements with the coloniality of the Anthropocene.
