Shantal Martis


Shantal is a recent graduate (2020) of the University College Roosevelt, where she earned her interdisciplinary BA in Liberal Arts & Sciences majoring in Anthropology, Sociology and Religious Studies. During her studies she went on a youth exchange in Mexico where she was exposed to the epistemic diversity of the world and learned to understand the global reality from a non-Eurocentric perspective. She is particularly interested in inequality and issues that are central to North-South relations. For her BA thesis, she researched the post-development critique and the relations between NGO practitioners and the communities who receive support.
