Residential Faculty Research Fellows

Spring 2020 Dresher Center Faculty Research Fellow

Tania Lizarazo, Assistant Professor of Modern Languages, Linguistics, and Intercultural Communication
Project: Postconflict Utopias: Performing Everyday Survival in Colombia

Postconflict Utopias and its accompanying digital storytelling archive, “Mujeres Pacíficas” explores how Afro-Colombian women and their local, regional, and transnational networks create knowledges and practices of peace-building in the everyday. Survival is not accidental, but an embodied collaborative practice, requiring a daily commitment to living in the midst of a decades-long (but often denied) armed conflict.
