Diddordebau ymchwil

Lucy's current research explores critical approaches to citizenship. She works with decolonial and settler colonial theory, applying these insights to lived experiences in Welsh Patagonia, Argentina and Wales. Her archive-based research asks critical questions of the mythologies that surround the Welsh in Patagonia to explore theoretical insights. These include: the colonial tensions of settler-indigenous ‘friendship’ Welsh Patagonia in global perspective; moral capital, righteousness and political power. Lucy is applying insights from Latin American to disrupt yet enrich the expanding theoretical area of settler colonial studies. With Geraldine Lublin (Swansea), she ran a workshop on this theme in June 2017 and is organising a Special Issue on Latin America for the field-leading journal Settler Colonial Studies, as well as hosting panels at SLAS and LASA in 2018. She is also active in Aberystwyth's multidisciplinary Centre for Welsh Politics and Society. See http://cwps.aber.ac.uk/
