 Forest-Experiences-of-War-in-Colombia

Talk by Daniel Ruiz-Serna
Postdoctoral Fellow, COHDS and Department of Anthropology, University of British Columbia. My research draws attention to the impact that war has in the relationships that indigenous and Afro-Colombian communities have with their environments and with the myriad non-human beings that forest and rivers harbour. For these peoples, violence is an experience that extends beyond the human. In this talk, I bring to the fore the kind of attunement we need to cultivate in order to pay attention to the suffering embodied by animals, spirits, and places.
