CAPAZ School of Online Courses launches an open session on textile art and reconciliation
Universidad de los Andes is running a course entitled “Pedagogies and Politics of Reconciliation: Limits and Possibilities of a Concept under Debate”, coordinated by Professor José Fernando Serrano. The course examines the origin, development and implementation of the concept of reconciliation, from academic debates and peacebuilding practice.
The course’s concluding session entitled “Mending the new. Textile practices to think about reconciliation” will be open to the public and will be held on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. (Colombian time), with live transmittion on the Universidad de los Andes website.
In this last session, Professor Eliana Sánchez-Aldana (Universidad de los Andes) will talk about the experiences of the project “Mending the new: practicing reconciliations through textile work and digital memory”, for which a transdisciplinary team from the social sciences, design and engineering, together with five textile collectives, designed tools to conceive new meanings of reconciliation.
This course is one of the short training programmes that formed part of the CAPAZ School of Online Courses (ECV) implemented in collaboration with its partner universities in Colombia and Germany.
