Door de ogen van drie generaties en via tientallen levendige verhalen ontrolt een eeuw Colombia zich op meeslepende wijze. Nergens komt de Colombiaanse geschiedenis zo samen als in de familie Pizarro. De vader is de opperbevelhebber van het leger en gelooft in de instituties. Zijn zoons en dochter worden guerrillero’s en prediken de revolutie. Tegen de achtergrond van de Koude Oorlog en de opkomst van de cocaïnehandel streven de Pizarro’s, elk op een eigen manier, naar een rechtvaardiger Colombia. +INFO MAY 13 In the Name of Christ: Violence, Religion, and Politics in Post-Revolutionary Mexico What were the political and cultural drivers that contributed to shaping Catholics’ understanding of violence as a legitimate means to defend their religious practices and beliefs in post-revolutionary Mexico? In this talk, Dr. Gema Santamaria will focus on the 1930s-1950s, a period marked by the end of the Cristero War (1927-1929) - Mexico’s armed conflict over the religious question - and the so-called détente between the Mexican state and the Catholic Church. Despite the Church’s official rejection of the use of violence amongst the faithful, during this period Catholics continued to engage in belligerent and violent forms of religious militancy in the name of Christ and religious freedom. +INFO APRIL 22 Unpacking the migrant / non-migrant relation: Key lessons from Ecuador and Italy How does the relation between migrants and (so-called) non-migrants evolve over time? In a historical period of unprecedented infrastructures for migrants' transnational connections, the risk exists to overstate migrants' engagement in their communities of origin, and neglect the gaps emerging in space and time between movers and stayers. As migrants realize upon return, the ‘normality’ of life in their hometowns is not fundamentally questioned by migration, unless after especially critical events. +INFO APRIL 1 A Body of One’s Own: Trans Embodiment Technologies and Knowledge Production in Argentina Unlike other countries where gender affirmation surgery access was restricted but still allowed under certain conditions, Argentina has prohibited any treatment that affected reproductive organs since 1967. Different legal codes have penalised people dressed as the “opposite sex” since the 1930s. This criminalisation has threatened trans people’s right to existence and made gender affirmation practices clandestine, expensive and dangerous. +INFO FEB 11 Conocimientos indígenas.

    WORKSHOP Urban transformations and new urban challenges after the COVID-19 pandemic in Amsterdam and Lima This workshop promotes an interregional and multidisciplinary dialogue on the dynamics of urban restructuring taking place in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The debate will revolve around the cities of Lima and Amsterdam, two paradigmatic yet contrasting cities from the Global South and the Global North. The speakers will participate in a dialogue in which they will discuss the characteristics of the reconfiguration of urban space, the restructuring of real estate markets and any other aspect of urban life undergoing readaptation after the Covid-19 pandemic; as well as the challenges for developing urban research under these conditions. The dialogue between Amsterdam and Lima provides urban researchers with an interesting perspective on urban governance because of the different places they represent in the production of urban theory. This workshop provides insights on the following questions: How does the role of the state influence urban experiences similarly or differently in Amsterdam and Lima? What can researchers in Amsterdam and Lima learn in the theoretical formulation of urban dynamics from the different experiences of both cities? ​ To register please write to kelly.gomez@pucp.pe We look forward to your participation and we hope you can spread the word to those who may be interested.

    FUNDACIÓN SLICHER VAN BATH DE JONG 2022 para la promoción del estudio y la investigación de la historia de América Latina FUNDACIÓN SLICHER VAN BATH DE JONG para la promoción del estudio y la investigación de la historia de América Latina. En 2004, el fallecido historiador Prof. Dr. B.H. Slicher van Bath, miembro vitalicio de la Real Academia de Ciencias y Catedrático de la Universidad de Groningen, Leiden, Wageningen y de la Universidad Católica de Nijmegen, dejó en testamento un legado al CEDLA, que incluye el nombre de su cónyuge JP De Jong, fallecida en 2009. El objetivo de la Fundación es promover el estudio y la investigación de la historia de América Latina desde 1500 a 1930, en particular mediante el apoyo financiero a la investigación histórica de jóvenes investigadores (preferentemente menores de 35 años). Los aspirantes a la beca Slicher van Bath-de Jong son estudiosos/as que estén preparando sus estudios de doctorado o que se hayan doctorado y quieran seguir desarrollando su investigación o una próxima publicación. Los aspirantes deben tener nacionalidades europeas o de estados de América Latina y residir en dichos territorios. Se entiende por América Latina aquellos estados en los cuales el castellano o el portugués sean lenguas oficiales. La beca está destinada a trabajos de investigación, realizados en archivos / bibliotecas. La beca tiene una duración máxima de un año. Después de la adjudicación sigue el beneficio del 75% de la beca. El resto se transferirá después de que el CEDLA haya recibido la(s) publicación(es) resultado de la beca y después de que el informe final haya sido aprobado por la Junta de la fundación Slicher van Bath-de Jong. La selección de los ganadores de la beca será decidida por un Consejo Científico, que consiste en: Prof. M. Baud - CEDLA/Universiteit van Amsterdam Prof. G.J. Oostindie - KITLV/ Universiteit Leiden Dr. S. Valdivia Rivera - Latin American studies/ Universiteit Leiden ​ ​ Biografía del Prof. Dr. B.H. Slicher van Bath ​ Bernard Hendrik Slicher van Bath nació en 1910 y murió en 2004. Se casó en 1941 con Jacoba Petronella de Jong (1918-2009). Slicher se formó como historiador y arqueólogo en Groningen y Utrecht. Se doctoró cum-laude en Ámsterdam sobre un tema de la historia jurídica de Drenthe. Poco después fue nombrado Archivero Nacional en Overijssel, dando lugar a: Een samenleving onder spanning. Geschiedenis van het platteland in Overijssel / Una sociedad bajo estrés. La historia rural de Overijssel (1957). Hasta 1970 estudia la historia rural de esta provincia y de otras partes de los Países Bajos y Europa. Los estudios de este periodo se concentran en De agrarische geschiedenis van West-Europa (500-1850) / La historia agraria de Europa Occidental (500- 1850) (1960), obra que de forma indirecta fue solicitada por la revista Cambridge Economic History of Europe. Se trata de un libro que fue traducido al inglés, al italiano, al español, al portugués y al japonés, ganando así el reconocimiento internacional de sus investigaciones. Cabe destacar que fue nombrado Catedrático de la Universidad de Groningen, una posición que poco después combinó con una Cátedra en Wageningen, dónde fue nombrado jefe del Departamento de Historia Agraria, realizó una serie de estudios sobre la historia socio-económica de las zonas rurales de los Países Bajos y Europa. Alrededor de 1950 despertó su interés por la historia de América Latina. Desde 1951 dio clases en Wageningen sobre la historia del continente. En los años 1967 y 1968 fue profesor invitado en la Universidad de Chicago, periodo en el cual se le presentó la oportunidad de viajar a América Latina. Durante los próximos años finalizó sus estudios sobre la historia agraria en Wageningen, para concentrarse en el arranque de un programa de investigación sobre América Latina. El resultado de este cambio en su investigación conllevó que renunciara a su plaza en Wageningen en 1972. Dos años más tarde fue nombrado director del CEDLA, donde trabajó en estrecha colaboración con el tempranamente fallecido Adriaan van Oss (1947-1984). Fue el comienzo de los próximos treinta años de investigación científica, llevada a cabo sobre todo después de su retiro. Esta nueva etapa fue muy fructífera y dio lugar a la publicación de cinco de sus principales libros: Spaans Amerika omstreeks 1600 (1979, recientemente publicado en español [2010]) / La América española en torno a 1600; Bevolking en economie in Nieuw-Spanje (ca 1570-1800) (1981) / Población y economía en la Nueva España (ca. 1570 a 1800); Real hacienda y economía en Hispanoamérica (1541-1820) (1989); Indianen en Spanjaarden: een ontmoeting tussen twee werelden. Latijns Amerika 1500-1800 / Indios y españoles: un encuentro entre dos mundos. América Latina 1500-1800 (1989); De bezinning op het verleden in Latijns Amerika, 1493-1820: auteurs, verhalen en lezers / Reflexión sobre el pasado en América Latina, 1493-1820: historias, de autores, y lectores (1998). Fue nombrado Catedrático Extraordinario de historia de América Latina de la Universidad de Leiden (1976-1981) y en la Universidad Católica de Nijmegen (1983), ocupando la cátedra LJ Rogier, también sobre la historia de América Latina. La obra con Van Oss se centraba en estudios historiográficos sobre América Latina. Su investigación cuantitativa no se alejaba mucho del enfoque que hizo en décadas anteriores sobre la historia rural europea, pero los dos investigadores le dieron más fondo a estas investigaciones y se esforzaron para conseguir una historia integral y holística, cubriendo más temas de estudio que en su etapa europea. Comprendiendo así la cultura, la ciencia, el arte, la iglesia y la religión, el gobierno y la política. Su último libro, De bezinning op het verleden in Latijns Amerika / Reflexión sobre el pasado en América Latina, en el cual trabajó durante ocho años casi a diario, trata de la historiografía de la historia de América Latina.

    SLICHER VAN BATH DE JONG FONDS 2022 ter bevordering van de studie en het onderzoek van de geschiedenis van Latijns-Amerika De in 2004 overleden historicus Prof. Dr. B.H. Slicher van Bath, bij leven lid van de Koninklijke Akademie van Wetenschappen en oud-hoogleraar van de Rijksuniversiteiten Groningen en Leiden, van de Landbouwuniversiteit Wageningen en de Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen, heeft bij testament een legaat nagelaten aan het CEDLA dat mede de naam draagt van zijn in 2009 overleden echtgenote, J.P. de Jong. Het doel van het Fonds is de bevordering van de studie en het onderzoek van de geschiedenis van Latijns-Amerika van vijftienhonderd tot 1930, met name door het verlenen van financiële steun aan historisch onderzoek van jonge wetenschappers (bij voorkeur jonger dan 35 jaar). Als bursaal komen in aanmerking beoefenaren der historische wetenschap die zich voorbereiden op een doctorsgraad of recent een overeenkomstige graad hebben bereikt en aantoonbaar werken aan een vervolgonderzoek. Zij moeten in Europa of in Latijns-Amerika zijn geboren en gevestigd. ​ Onder Latijns-Amerika wordt verstaan het gebied omvattende de staten in Amerika waarin het Spaans of Portugees als officiële talen worden gebruikt. De beurs is bedoeld voor onderzoekswerk zoals archiefonderzoek of verblijf in bibliotheken dat in principe plaatsheeft in het jaar nadat de beurs is toegekend. Na toekenning volgt de uitkering van 75% van de beurs. Het restant wordt overgemaakt nadat CEDLA publicatie(s) heeft ontvangen die het resultaat zijn van de CEDLA-beurs en nadat het eindrapport is goedgekeurd door het bestuur van de Stichting Slicher van Bath-de Jong. ​ De selectie van beurswinnaars wordt bepaald door een wetenschappelijke raad bestaande uit: Prof. M. Baud - CEDLA/Universiteit van Amsterdam Prof. G.J. Oostindie - KITLV/ Universiteit Leiden Dr. S. Valdivia Rivera - Latin American studies/ Universiteit Leiden ​ ​ Biografie van Prof. Dr. B.H. Slicher van Bath Bernard Hendrik Slicher van Bath werd geboren in 1910 en overleed in 2004. Hij huwde in 1941 met Jacoba Petronella de Jong (1918-2009). Slicher werd opgeleid als historicus en archeoloog in Groningen en Utrecht. Hij promoveerde in 1945 in Amsterdam cum laude op een onderwerp uit de rechtsgeschiedenis van Drente en werd niet lang daarna aangesteld als Rijksarchivaris in Overijssel. Hij gebruikte zijn aanstelling onder meer om onderzoek te doen naar de geschiedenis van deze provincie. Dit resulteerde in Een samenleving onder spanning. Geschiedenis van het platteland in Overijssel (1957). Tot 1970 zou hij werken aan de plattelandsgeschiedenis van deze provincie en andere delen van Nederland en zelfs Europa. Vrucht hiervan was De agrarische geschiedenis van West- Europa (500-1850) (1960), indirect geschreven op verzoek van de redactie van de Cambridge Economic History of Europe — een boek dat werd vertaald in het Engels, Italiaans, Spaans, Portugees en Japans en hem zijn internationale reputatie bezorgde. Intussen was hij benoemd als hoogleraar in Groningen, een positie die hij al kort daarna ging combineren met een leerstoel in Wageningen. Onder zijn leiding werden aan de Afdeling Agrarische Geschiedenis een serie studies over de sociaal-economische geschiedenis van het platteland in delen van Nederland en elders op stapel gezet. Al in 1950 was bij Slicher de belangstelling voor de geschiedenis van Latijns-Amerika gewekt. Vanaf 1951 gaf hij in Wageningen colleges over de geschiedenis van het continent. Toen hij in 1967 voor twee jaar als gasthoogleraar verbonden was aan de University of Chicago was eindelijk de kans daar om door Latijns-Amerika te reizen. De regionale agrarische geschiedenis te Wageningen zag hij in toenemende mate als invuloefeningen die weinig meerwaarde opleverden. In feite wilde hij in die jaren definitief met dit onderzoek stoppen en een onderzoeksprogramma over Latijns-Amerika starten. Mede om die reden nam hij in 1972 ontslag — dertig jaar geschiedbeoefening in de agrarische geschiedenis van Europa waren voorbij. Twee jaar later werd Slicher directeur van het CEDLA waar hij nauw samenwerkte met de jong gestorven historicus Adriaan van Oss (1947-1984). Het was het begin van de volgende dertig jaar wetenschappelijk onderzoek — grotendeels na zijn pensionering uitgevoerd. In deze productieve jaren publiceerde hij vijf grote boeken: Spaans Amerika omstreeks 1600 (1979, onlangs uitgekomen in het Spaans [2010]), Bevolking en economie in Nieuw-Spanje (ca 1570-1800) (1981), Real hacienda y economía en Hispanoamérica (1541-1820) (1989), Indianen en Spanjaarden: een ontmoeting tussen twee werelden. Latijns Amerika 1500-1800 (1989), en De bezinning op het verleden in Latijns Amerika, 1493-1820: auteurs, verhalen en lezers (1998). Hij werd benoemd tot bijzonder hoogleraar in de geschiedenis van Latijns-Amerika aan de Rijksuniversiteit te Leiden (1976-1981) en aan de Katholieke Universiteit te Nijmegen (1983), op de L.J. Rogierleerstoel, eveneens met de leeropdracht Latijns-Amerikaanse geschiedenis. Het werk met Van Oss had in het teken gestaan van een integrale geschiedschrijving van Latijns-Amerika. De gevolgde kwantitatieve onderzoeksmethoden weken nauwelijks af van de aanpak die hij in de voorgaande decennia voor de geschiedenis van het Europese platteland had gebruikt, maar omdat de twee onderzoekers streefden naar integrale of holistische geschiedschrijving werd inhoudelijk een breder terrein bestreken dan voorheen, nu met inbegrip van cultuur, wetenschap, kunst, kerk en religie, bestuur en politiek. Zijn laatste boek, De bezinning op het verleden in Latijns Amerika, waaraan hij acht jaar vrijwel dagelijks werkte, gaat over de historiografie van de geschiedenis van Latijns-Amerika. ​ Lorena Albornoz Bielefeld Universität Análisis histórico jurídico de los tratados y parlamentos Mapuche entre los siglos XVI al XIX Sabrina Asquini Universidad de Buenos Aires El catolicismo y la cuestión religiosa en las culturas de izquierda en Argentina, 1890-1922 Federico Del Giudice Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa, Italy) Foreigners’ social rights in Argentina.

  • CEDLA | Master's Latin American Studies - University of Amsterdam

    Slicher van Bath de Jong Foundation for the advancement of study and research on the history of Latin America Professor Dr. B. H. Slicher van Bath, who died in 2004 and in life was a member of KNAW – The Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences and emeritus professor of the universities of Groningen, Leiden, Wageningen and Nijmegen, has bequeathed a legacy by testament to CEDLA in his name and that of his wife J.P. de Jong, who died 2009. The aim of the Fund is to advance the study and research on the history of Latin American from 1500 to 1930 by providing financial support for the historical research of scholars (preferably younger than 35 years of age). Those students eligible for this scholarship are studying history and are preparing for their PhD or have recently obtained an equivalent degree, and are verifiably working on further research. It is further required that they are linked to a university in either Europe or in Latin America. The term Latin America pertains to the region that covers the countries in the Americas where Spanish or Portuguese are the official languages. The scholarship is meant for research activities such as archival research or study in various libraries that is to be carried out in the year after the scholarship has been awarded. The recipient receives 75 per cent of the scholarship following acceptance of the award, and the remainder after a final report has been submitted and approved. Each year the Slicher van Bath de Jong Fund offers at least four research scholarships with a maximum of €10,000 each. ​ The selection of the scholarship winners will be decided upon by a Scientific Board, consisting of: Prof. M. Baud - CEDLA/University of Amsterdam Prof. G.J. Oostindie - KITLV/ Leiden University Dr. S. Valdivia Rivera - Latin American studies/Leiden University ​ ​ Biography of Professor Dr. B.H. Slicher van Bath ​ Bernard Hendrik Slicher van Bath was born in 1910 and died in 2004. In 1941 he married Jacoba Petronella de Jong (1918-2009). Slicher was educated as a historian and archaeologist in Groningen and Utrecht. In 1945 he received his doctorate cum laude in Amsterdam on Mensch en land in de middelleeuwen. Bijdrage tot een geschiedenis der nederzettingen in Oostelijk Nederland (Man and Land in the Middle Ages. A Contribution to the History of Settlements in Eastern Netherlands). He became Rijksarchivaris (head of the Public Record Office) in Overijssel soon after that. He took advantage of this position to do research on the history of the province. In 1957 he published Een samenleving onder spanning. Geschiedenis van het platteland in Overijssel (A Society under Pressure. Agrarian History of Overijssel). He continued to work on the agrarian history of this province as well other areas of the Netherlands and Europe until 1970. In 1960 he published the authoritative De agrarische geschiedenis van West-Europa (500-1850) (The Agrarian History of Western Europe, A.D. 500-1850), which he had written at the request of the editors of the Cambridge Economic History of Europe. It was translated into English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese and brought him international recognition. He was professor of Economic History at the University of Groningen and Chair of Agrarian History at the University of Wageningen. A series of research programmes was launched on the social-economic history of agrarian regions in the Netherlands under his supervision at the Department of Agrarian History at Wageningen University. By 1950 Slicher had also developed an interest in the history of Latin America. In 1951 he began giving lectures in Wageningen on the history of the continent. His two-year position as guest professor at the University of Chicago finally gave him the chance to travel in Latin America. The European regional agrarian history that he had researched for so many years became less and less interesting to him. What he now wanted to do was to begin a research programme on Latin America. In 1972 he resigned, and 30 years of studying the agrarian history of Europe was ended. Two years later Slicher became the director of CEDLA, where he worked closely with the historian Adrian van Oss, who died young (1947-1984). This was the beginning of the next thirty years of scholarly research – much of which was carried out after he retired. In these productive years he published five lengthy books: Spaans Amerika omstreeks 1600 [1979], and recently published in Spanish [2010]; Bevolking en economie in Nieuw-Spanje (ca 1570-1800) [1981]; Real hacienda y economía en Hispanoamérica (1541-1820) [1989]; Indianen en Spanjaarden: een ontmoeting tussen twee werelden. Latijns Amerika 1500-1800 [1989]; and De bezinning op het verleden in Latijns Amerika, 1493-1820: auteurs, verhalen en lezers [1998]. He was appointed Endowed Professor in the History of Latin America at Leiden University (1976-1981) and at the Catholic University of Nijmegen [now Radboud] in 1983 as the L.J. Rogier Chair in the History of Latin America. His collaboration with Van Oss had centred on an integral historiography of Latin America. The quantitative methodology he applied was very similar to the approach he had used in the previous decades for the agrarian history of Europe, but because the two researchers now aspired to write an integral or holistic historiography, a broader scope was covered that included culture, science, art, church and religion, government, and politics. His last book De bezinning op het verleden in Latijns Amerika (A reflection on Latin America’s past), on which he worked almost daily for eight years, concerns the an interpretation of the historiography of Latin America.

  • RIVERHOOD. Living Rivers and the New Water Justice Movements

    New CEDLA - UvA Projects We are happy to announce that the ERC Consolidator Grant proposal of Prof. dr. Rutgerd Boelens (CEDLA - UvA) has been accepted by EU Horizon 2020 “RIVERHOOD. Living Rivers and the New Water Justice Movements: From Dominating Waterscapes to the Rights of Nature” It is a 5-years project that will study ‘riverhood’ and ‘translocal water justice movements’ in Europe and Latin America. This project will be coordinated from the Wageningen University (WUR) with an strong bridge to CEDLA-UvA. The proposal counted also with invaluable inputs from many of the CEDLA's research team. We are specially glad because the proposal’s evaluation was graded as ‘excellent’ and ‘exceptional’. The project will start in Spring 2021. The project includes 4 fully financed PhDs and the means to develop, among other activities, ‘environmental justice labs’ in The Netherlands, Spain, Ecuador and Colombia, with a large number of grassroots, academic and policy-making partners. The total grant is 2 million euros. ABSTRACT: “RIVERHOOD will study, conceptualize and support evolving water justice movements that struggle for enlivening rivers. Notwithstanding rivers’ fundamental importance for social and natural well-being, around the world, mega-damming, pollution, and multiple forms of domesticating are putting riverine systems under great stress. Expert ontologies and epistemologies have become cornerstones of powerful hydraulic-bureaucratic administrations (‘hydrocracies’). Recently, worldwide, a large variety of ‘new water justice movements’ (NWJMs) have proliferated. These are transdisciplinary, multi-actor and multi-scalar coalitions. They deploy alternative river-society ontologies and practices, challenging hydrocracies’ paradigms to foster environmental justice. They translate global notions into local ones and vice versa. New, exciting strategies include, among others, New Water Culture and Rights of Nature notions. European NWJMs co-learn with peers in Ecuador and Colombia were rivers are legal and political subjects. NWJMs hold immense potential for contributing to a radically new, equitable and nature-rooted water governance, but are undertheorized, largely unnoticed by natural and social sciences, and excluded from policy-making. Science and policies lack approaches to engage with rivers as arenas of co-production among humans and nature. RIVERHOOD will develop a new analytical framework to study NWJMs and ‘riverhoods’. Through 4 cross-cultural PhD studies, 8 cases in Ecuador, Colombia, Spain and the Netherlands are investigated. At each site ‘Environmental Justice Labs’ will be organized: a novel approach to comprehend pluriversal water worlds and foster knowledge co-creation and democratization.” Rutgerd Boelens is Professor 'Political Ecology of Water in Latin America' holding a part-time special chair with CEDLA and the University of Amsterdam (Fac. Social and Behavioral Sciences FMG/GPIO and Fac. Humanities). He also works as Professor Water Governance and Social Justice at Wageningen University (Environmental Sciences Group, Water Resources Management), and is Visiting Professor at the Catholic University of Peru and the Central University of Ecuador. He directs the international Justicia Hídrica /Water Justice alliance, engaged with comparative research and training on water accumulation, conflict and civil society action.
