about this item

Territories of Conflict offers a comprehensive view of the cultural and political landscapes of Colombia through in-depth analyses of citizenship, displacement, local and global cultures, grass-root movements, political activism, human rights, environmentalism, and media production. This volume investigates conflict as a creative force that is not fully devoid of its destructive meaning in Colombia. It is precisely through conflict that this nation's social and cultural fabric are being mapped out, thus resulting in territories -- understood in both a literal and a metaphorical sense -- that paradoxically exist in discordance. Contributors to this interdisciplinary volume include historians, sociologists, political scientists, musicologists, and environmentalists, as well as literary, media, and cultural studies specialists from the U.S., Colombia, and Europe.
