My name is Andrea and via University College Roosevelt I had the opportunity to help out with the UCRITICAL project. At the moment I am graduating, but I am very happy that this idea was worked out at a moment that I could still be part of it. I have followed courses in sociology of Latin America and anthropology and a journey to Mexico made the importance of what we were studying very clear. The perspectives that we became familiar with, I think, are core to many of the problems in this world (perhaps rightly summarized by ‘inequality’). It should actually be read and understood by everyone. This is exactly what our group wanted to start addressing and why I joined the project. I hope it will serve its purpose and help many people gain understanding. I also hope that they will find themselves able to contribute. In any case, have a good read and let us know what you think!
