Conference and Workshop in Bogotá, Colombia “Repensar los cercamientos en Colombia desde una mirada regional y global” 23-25 April 2018, Universidad del Rosario

It’s been quite a while since my last post. It’s been a busy month where I have been teaching, grading, submitting manuscripts, evaluating work (master thesis, articles), writing expert reports for Honduran (mostly women) fleeing different forms of violence (domestic violence, gang violence), testifying telephonically in U.S. immigration hearings.   A lot has been going on as you can see.

What have been up to? These past two weeks I’ve been working on a workshop on gender and international relations for undergraduate students of Political Science (I will write a post on that next week) and an upcoming conference I will attend in Bogotá.

 The conference and workshop entitled, “Repensar los cercamientos en Colombia desde una mirada regional y global: El papel de la territorialidad, la colonialidad y la temporalidad” and is organized by academics from four universities (Uni Rosario, Uni Amsterdam, FU Berlin, and Universidad Nacional de San Martin in Argentina). The event will take place from 23 to 25 April 2018 at the Universidad del Rosario in Bogotá D.C.

I’ll be talking about security and violence against women in Medellin, exploring the challenges urban women have in the context of peace building in Colombia.

Here’s a summary of the event in Spanish:
