Dr Luci Attala

Luci is a senior lecturer in Anthropology at UWTSD. Her work challenges human exceptionalism by exploring how substances - particularly water - actively shapes knowing, bodies and practice.

She was awarded a United Nations Gold Star for work achieved with students and a group of Giriama farmers suffering from the deepening drought caused by the climate changing in rural Kenya and won the EAUC International Green Gown Award for teaching that furnishes graduates with skills to respond to current conditions.

Luci currently edits an interdisciplinary series that employs a New Materialities perspective to rethink the world with University of Wales Press and is engaged with a UNESCO-BRIDGES supported project called Múnekañ Masha: Revitalizing Water in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta with the Kogi and the Tairona Heritage Trust.
