Social Space, Memory and Conflict in Colombia
16.11.2018, 10.00 bis 18.30 Uhr
Museum der Kulturen Basel
Since the peace agreements, Colombia has become the focus of research related to conflict and postconflict situations. The ‘spatial turn’ in the social sciences and humanities provides an opportunity to explore the relationship between social space, conflict and popular imaginations. The workshop is a platform for recent research projects about Columbia based in Switzerland and relate them to works abroad.
A joint event of the Seminar of Social Anthropology, University of Basel / Museum der Kulturen Basel and the Swiss Society of Americanists with the support of the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Freiwillige Akademische Gesellschaft Basel.
