Digital Nomads and Culture-Vulture Poseurs: Plumbing the Cultural Depths of Gentrification in Oaxaca, Mexico

Το σεμινάριο θα διεξαχθεί διαδικτυακά στον εξής ΣΥΝΔΕΣΜΟ.

Περίληψη ομιλίας
In this presentation, I address the question of whether the movement of predominantly white, educated individuals, digital nomads, and other “culture-vulture” poseurs from the Global North to cities of the Global South can be considered as gentrification. Using the example of Oaxaca in Mexico, I argue that the transformations of culture in a city that has long been gentrified by “Whitexicans” (white Mexicans) is a distinct phenomenon that deserves further study. Fueled by Instagram aesthetics and the desire for authenticity, this process highlights the intersection of indigenous beliefs, politics, representations, and the global dynamics of gentrification. I propose that this unique context challenges traditional understandings of the power dynamics associated with gentrification. Through a deeper examination of its complexities, I reframe this process as a diversely aware form of aesthetics.
