Thread-ing: Imaginaries for Indigenous and Campesino mobilization in Colombia

Thu, May 28, 6:00 to 7:45pm, TBA

Session Submission Type: Panel


From the rise of the Indigenous Guard, the National Minga for Education and the recent indigenous and campesino mobilizations in Colombia, this panel intent to give a reading of the symbolic processes taking place along with the social and political transformations the country is facing. By using decolonial, relational, and literary methods the presentations interwoven the complex social and cultural dynamics redefining the role of historically excluded subjects in Colombia at the moment of a possible end of the internal conflict. By their actions they bring into attention the historical marginalization and subjugation of Indigenous and peasant communities in the territory and show alternative ways of being in todays Colombia.
