This proposal aims to develop a pluri-epistemic, multi-situated, and collaborative knowledgebuilding process in the intersection between disciplines (anthropology, public health, and thearts) and knowledge that are exogenous to our modern disciplinary regime. We seek tounderstand, connect, and empower knowledge of cosmopolitics of care mobilized by publichealth alterities and exorbitances, with special attention given to gender and sexuality inintersectional and decolonial perspectives, as well as to understand potential impacts of saidcosmopolitics and knowledge on the Collective/Public Health with regard to processes pertainingto the Brazilian End of the World. This proposal brings continuity to a long-lasting relationshipwith the Amazon, particularly with the state of Amazonas and its transborder complex, makingway for connections with other (trans-)border territorialities and deterritorialization processesthat are characteristic of the Anthropocene. The proposal can be divided into five portions. Thefirst three are contained to situated networks, derived from the Young Researcher-1 (JP-1) grantand from my trajectory as an anthropologist (indigenous women, marginalized gay and transyouth in the Amazon, and sex workers); the fourth seeks to open this proposal to newconnections and networks by devoting attention to ostensive deterritorialization processeslinked to urban peripherization and environmental disasters; and the fifth portion is a responseto the need for more tight-knit dialog with the Collective/Public Health field. To develop thisproposal, we will carry out ethnographic studies with the given networks, hold KnowledgeMeetings and Future-building Workshops, and produce a Transmedia Platform. Finally, we willcreate a line of research and a research center under the Department of Health, Life Cycles, andSociety of the University of São Paulo's School of Public Health.
