The Report "Colombia, Violencia y Democracia": Localism and its Limits
Presenting: Ana Mercedes Sánchez Ramírez, PhD Candidate in Peace Studies and History at the University of Notre Dame
Commentator: Franz Hensel, Professor of History at the School of Humanities at Universidad del Rosario
Topic: We will be discussing, “The Limits of Localism in the Report Colombia: Violencia y Democracia,” the fourth chapter of the dissertation research on the rise and influence of “violentology,” an expert knowledge that emerged at the intersection of academic studies on violence in Colombia and the government’s peacebuilding initiatives from the late 1980s onwards.
About the The Emerging Scholars Workshop:
The Emerging Scholars Workshop is a program sponsored by the Colombian Studies Initiative in collaboration with NYU CLACS that offers Masters, Ph.D and advanced undergraduate students from a variety of disciplines to present current Colombia-related research or working papers to fellow scholars and peers.
The goal of these workshops is to expand interdisciplinary and intercollegiate academic exchange between participating students and faculty to continue the development and analysis of research concerning Colombia throughout NYU and other academic institutions. The workshop will offer a space for presenting students to create discussion and receive feedback from an expert scholar in their field of study.
