Antonádia Borges is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Brasilia. She does research along with popular ethnographers who dedicate their daily lives to theorize, understand, and challenge capitalism and State capture.

Her main effort is to teach and spread challenging perspectives and the diverging political stances espoused by peripheral worlds and ontologies on issues like land, housing, and education.
