Wednesdays at the Center

Book presentation with editors Kevin Guerrieri (UC San Diego) and Carlos Gardeazabal-Bravo (Rhodes College). With authors: Daniel Coral (UC Davis), Carolina Sánchez (Rutgers), Miguel Rojas-Sotelo (Duke University).

This volume explores how Colombian cultural production seek to enact-to perform, to stage, to represent-human rights that are otherwise enacted discursively, that is, made public or official, in juridical and political realms. Through a wide range of disciplinary lenses, the different chapters explore counter-hegemonic concepts of human rights and enacted justice via art and cultural production, amplifying the discourses of human dignity and emancipation within and beyond academia.
