Biography

Marisa Duarte researches problems of information, knowledge, and technology in Native American and Indigenous contexts. For example, her most recent work examines tensions between wearable technologies, privacy, and well-being among marginalized peoples, specifically among Indigenous and Mexican American women. She also investigates Native and Indigenous peoples uses of social media, construction of large-scale digital infrastructures, and interfaces that allow for the circulation of Indigenous ways of knowing. Her work requires understanding of Western and Indigenous philosophies of science and technology, as well as Indigenous concepts of justice.

Professor Duarte is also a member of the HSCollab, which is a lab within the Global Security Initiative at Arizona State University. She crafts research projects that advance science, technology, and society studies, and also shape the health and well-being of the many peoples of the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, including the well-being of folks in her own tribe, Pascua Yaqui Tribe, and surrounding communities.
