Recognizing and Confronting Violence: The Evidence from Latin America
Latin America reportedly has the world's highest rates of homicide, economic inequality, violence against women, and killings of environmental activists. One dimension of the problem is conceptualization. Most people accept and even rationalize different forms of violence. Therefore remedying injustice and transforming violent conditions requires critical examination of how people give it mean-ing. Drawing on his research of Latin American politics and social movements, Dr. Wilson-Becerril will lead a discussion of the many faces of violence and violence as a discourse, and will provide an overview of regional social movements and how they resist and transform it.
