Environmental Insecurity, Ecological Memory and Novel Politics of Care in 'Post-Conflict' Colombia

Colombia is emerging as a country of contrasts, where massive new infrastructure, mining, oil and hydroelectric projects all over the country are being met by a flourishing of communities working around the defense of their territory, water, food sovereignty, and putting in practice diverse economies, democratic devices and various forms of peaceful, artistic and creative mobilization.  This lecture presented by Juan Francisco Salazar, associate professor at Western Sydney University, and introduced by Marillo Murillo, professor of Radio, Television, Film at Hofstra University.
