Anelis Kaiser Trujillo
In her research stay at IWM, Anelis Kaiser Trujillo will focus on a selected neuroscientific tool, the Implicit Association Test (IAT), and how it is used in ongoing neuroscientific experimentations in Latin America today. Based on this, she will examine research on the topic of gender and racial bias in human cognitive neuroscience and view it through the lens of decolonization. Kaiser Trujillo examines the problem of classifications/categorizations of race in human neurocognitive science and asks: Doesn't the IAT, through its compulsory categorization of race, once again implant the necessity of racialization? And what does this type of research mean in the context of the decolonialidad for the Mapuche movement?
