Conference itinerary and international speakers
The virtual conferences will analyse violence and conflicts, as well as memory processes from a Latin American perspective. While in many cases, in the current contexts of some countries, violence persists and continues to have an influence – almost like a colonial legacy – today, the region’s violent past in addressed via a dynamic and controversial approach.
The series includes presentations by Latin American and European researchers, who will present their current investigations on the subject, from different perspectives and complexities:
