    CEDLA Latin American Studies CEDLA Latin American Studies Out of gallery About CEDLA ​ Since its creation in 1964, the Centre for Latin American Research and Documentation (CEDLA), hosted by the University of Amsterdam, has promoted Latin American Studies in the Netherlands, Europe and beyond. We do this by conducting and stimulating relevant and original research on developments in Latin America and distributing the results of this research internationally via academic education at BA, MA and PhD levels and via academic publications such as the open access journal ERLACS . Based on a long history of multi-disciplinary research and studies in the fields of both Social Sciences and Humanities (including cultural anthropology, history, political science, human geography, sociology and economics), we increasingly apply interdisciplinary approaches in our projects and education. CEDLA’s library is considered one of Europe’s largest specialized collections of material on Latin America. The CEDLA institute is part of the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam . We also have close ties with the UvA’s Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences as well as with Latin American Studies programmes and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad. CEDLA’s research pertains to the Amsterdam School for Regional, Transnational and European Studies (ARTES), which stimulates cross-Regional Studies collaboration. For detailed reports of CEDLA’s activities see our Annual Reports on the years 2017 , 2018 , 2019 and 2020 . Academic Research CEDLA’s research focuses on present and past processes of societal change in Latin America. The CEDLA team has acquired external research funding from various agencies, including the NWO and the EU. In addition to conducting multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research, the Centre makes every effort to distribute the research results and stimulate both academic and societal debates on Latin America. This is done by writing (academic) publications, organising lectures, seminars and conferences, and working in conjunction with sister organisations in the Netherlands as well as abroad. Next to its team of researchers, CEDLA hosts a number of PhD students and fellows, and occasionally appoints temporary staff members for specific research projects. CEDLA researchers are involved in multiple research networks with Latin American and other international researchers and institutions. ​ Education Education CEDLA offers BA, MA and PhD courses and programmes. At the Bachelor’s level, the programme of Spanish and Latin American Studies (SLAS) [link SLAS op uva website] offers a special track in Latin American Studies. CEDLA also offers a broad range of topical courses on Latin America within the field of Social Sciences and the Humanities, which can be taken individually or combined into a minor in Latin American Studies . The minor and individual courses are also open to students from other universities. In the multi-disciplinary Master's of Latin American Studies (MLAS), students spend two to three months in Latin America to do research for their thesis project. The MLAS is part of the Latin American Studies Programme (LASP), an interuniversity graduate programme providing Master and PhD education, which is coordinated by CEDLA. In addition, CEDLA offers tailormade training programmes for professionals (e.g. to the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs). ​ Publications CEDLA hosts the academic peer-reviewed open access journal ERLACS – European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies / Revista Europea de Estudios Latinoamericanos y del Caribe – that is published twice a year, in print and online. Scholars from all across the globe contribute articles to ERLACS that reflect substantial empirical research and/or innovative theoretical contributions with respect to major scholarly debates. In association with Berghahn Books, CEDLA also published the book series CEDLA Latin America Studies (CLAS), which consists of monographs and edited volumes. Library Library The CEDLA library has an extensive and in many ways unique collection of more than 80,000 books and hundreds of journals, as well as extensive archive material on microfilm, and many reference works and bibliographies. The library provides to all visitors an attractive opportunity to view, study, borrow, and copy material. The complete collection can be searched through the central catalogue of the University of Amsterdam. ​ Other networks and activities There is extensive and continuous contact at the research level with foreign universities and research institutes specializing in Latin American Studies. Within the Netherlands, CEDLA is a well-known platform and contact point for scholars, students, journalists, public and private institutions, NGOs and citizens with questions or plans with regard to the region. For instance, we provide space for the monthly meetings of the interuniversity PhD-student forum for Research on Latin America, OLA , and work together closely with our colleagues in the Netherlands Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies, NALACS . Furthermore, CEDLA offers support to two scholarship programmes for young scholars in Latin American Studies: the Prince Bernard Scholarships and the Slicher van Bath-de Jong Fund . ​ Our Objectives Our Objectives to carry out Social Science and Humanities (SSH) research on Latin America to further research-based teaching on Latin America to extend and increase knowledge about the societies and cultures of Latin America to collect books, journals and other materials relevant to the study and documentation of Latin America to foster the exchange and coordination of Latin American Studies in the Netherlands. ​ ACADEMIC STAFF Prof. dr.

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. ENGLISH / NEDERLANDS SOLICITUDES ​ Las solicitudes deben incluir: 1) Una descripción de la investigación, incluyendo la planificación y el presupuesto dónde queden todos los gastos debidamente justificados (máximo 2000 palabras). 2) Un breve Currículum Vitae 3) Una carta de recomendación del supervisor de la propuesta de investigación De los beneficiarios/as de las becas se espera que presenten sus investigaciones al CEDLA, mediante la presentación de uno o más resultados de su investigación en forma de una conferencia o mediante la publicación de la investigación.

    Out of gallery Slicher van Bath de Jong Foundation for the advancement of study and research on the history of Latin America New call: We are now accepting applications for the Slicher van Bath de Jong scholarship 2022. Deadline: 25 April 2022 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 were born and reside 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.

    Out of gallery SLICHER VAN BATH DE JONG FONDS 2022 ter bevordering van de studie en het onderzoek van de geschiedenis van Latijns-Amerika Open Call: 25 april 2022 deadline 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. ​ ENGLISH / CASTELLANO AANVRAGEN ​ Aanvragen kunnen worden geschreven in het Nederlands, Engels of het Spaans en dienen te bestaan uit de volgende elementen: 1.

    CEDLA Publications ERLACS – European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies CLAS Book s Cuaderno s Julienne Weegels, the speaker of this lecture was interviewed in various Dutch media during the Nicaraguan elections. Watch here an interview on NPO Radio 1 (in Dutch) nov 19 CEDLA Lecture: Power, imprisonment and the force of law in Nicaragua Julienne Weegels, CEDLA-ARTES, University of Amsterdam ​ In 2018, massive protests shook Nicaragua and their repression was brutal. Over 300 people were killed in a ‘Clean-Up Operation’ that exposed militarized political policing and the formation of partisan, armed para-state groups. Over the course of the following months and years, more than 1.600 people have been imprisoned for expressing resistance and dissent. Tracing the trajectories of a number of these political prisoners through the Nicaraguan criminal justice system and, in some cases, back out, I explore distinct performances of the ‘law’ and hybrid state power. Provoking a sense of ontological insecurity among its subjects, acting outside of and manipulating the law point to the ‘force of law’ rather than the rule of law as pivotal to the exercise of power. This in turn informs protesters’ and (former) prisoners’ performances of state delegitimation - think of street and prison riots, but also more silent contestations - where conceptions of authority, justice and law are reimagined.

Many countries in the two regions (re-)introduced term limits as a democratic safeguard against personal rule and power abuses. Since then, term limits have been contested by a plethora of reform attempts. Such reforms are commonly seen as a risk to democracy. Her theoretical and empirical research (together with Charlotte Heyl ) shows that the stability of term-limit rules is more prevalent than expected, but that this stability sometimes masks institutional ineffectiveness in authoritarian regimes. Rule instability induced by frequent reforms can be part of a piecemeal path towards autocratization, but it can also reflect an open-ended tug of war between authoritarian tendencies and democratic resistance. ​ This lecture took place on 26 February 2021 as part of the CEDLA Lecture Series.

Challenges and Perspectives Stefan Peters, Instituto CAPAZ (Bogotá) & University of Giessen ​ The Colombian peace process is at a crossroads. Although there is important progress, for example regarding transitional justice, various key issues for peace building continue to be unsolved. Moreover, we cannot speak of peace at all and rather we are observing a transformed violence. The talk will analyze the state of the peace process five years after the peace agreement and highlight important voids in both the agreement and implementation. It will close with recommendations that are crucial for building a lasting and sustainable peace in Colombia. ​

Ruben Gonzalez-Vicente will discuss how Sino-Caribbean relations remain shaped by epistemic dependency, structural imbalances, and a number of unresolved social issues relating to the postcolonial condition in former plantation societies. He argues that expectations deposited in the emerging ‘South-South’ link with China in Latin America and the Caribbean are easily overstated. Instead, the relation is characterized by China’s elitist business-centric approach to development, the eschewing of participatory approaches in Sino-Caribbean ventures, and the passive incorporation of the Caribbean into China’s global vision. The presentation is based on his work with Annita Montoute (University of the West Indies). ​

  • Riverhood and River Commons in Latin America and Europe

    mar 19 Riverhood and river commons in Latin America and Europe Prof. dr. Rutgerd Boelens , Wageningen University & CEDLA - University of Amsterdam ​ River systems are fundamental for social and natural well-being. Around the world, however, mega-damming, pollution and depletion are putting riverine complexes under great stress. Since ages, engineering of ideal societies by domesticating ‘wild water’ followed utopian imaginaries to control humans and nature at once, while omitting alternative understandings and side-lining local co-governance practices. In Europe, this has a long tradition: “God created the world but the Dutch created the Netherlands”. Spain’s century-old Política Hidráulica envisioned “recreating nature and humans, at once”. Both countries exported their technocratic paradigms to Latin America, but the pendulum may now swing back. Ecuador engrained ‘Rights of Nature’ constitutionally. In Colombia, rivers became subjects, not objects, of moral and legal rights. Increasingly, socio-nature commons fight for revitalizing rivers. European grassroots now seek to creatively translate these notions in their struggles, and partners in South and North join forces, building bottom-up, cross-cultural knowledge. Science and policies, however, lack the tools to engage with these new water justice movements. Through two new international Wageningen / CEDLA-UvA programs, we will study local and transnational “river commoning” languages, values, practices, and strategies. We will examine river complexes from four connected ontologies: River-as-ecosociety; River-as-territory; River-as-subject; and River-as-movement. ​ This lecture took place on 19 March 2021 as part of the CEDLA Lecture Series.

Estamos intentando agendarla para más adelante. Les mantendremos informados. CEDLA Lecture: Conocimientos indígenas. Repensando las políticas globales de cambio climático en Colombia Astrid Ulloa , profesora titular, Universidad Nacional ​ El cambio climático global y los posteriores procesos de mitigación y adaptación son temas que trascienden los contextos locales y requieren la interacción de diferentes conocimientos, ideas y prácticas. Sin embargo, las acciones globales contra el CC han estado sustentadas por un solo tipo de conocimiento. Si bien se han planteado propuestas para la articulación de diversos conocimientos, los intentos de acuerdos interculturales e interdisciplinarios continúan enfrentando problemas de comparación con la ciencia especializada, en términos de indicadores, escalas, formas de sistematización y variables a considerar, especialmente en los procesos de predicción. En este contexto, argumento que los conocimientos indígenas, dadas sus ontologías, epistemologías y relaciones culturales de acuerdo con el género, la edad, la especialización y la localización, permiten una comprensión compleja del CC. Son conocimientos que confrontan las políticas global-nacionales para visibilizar los territorios como seres vivos, y los no humanos como seres políticos, y proponer alternativas contextualizadas de acuerdo con procesos históricos y políticos para repensar conceptos, estrategias y políticas frente al cambio climátic ​ ​

    More past events Demilitarization and Independence in Latin America: Lessons from Costa Rica and Beyond Webinar co-organized by CEDLA and the Embassy of Costa Rica in the Netherlands Keynote speaker: Luis Guillermo Solís, former President of Costa Rica and Interim director of the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center, FIU Discussants: Prof. dr. Kees Koonings and Prof. dr. Dirk Kruijt, Utrecht University Chair: Prof. dr. Barbara Hogenboom, CEDLA—University of Amsterdam Costa Rica is one of the most stable democracies of the Western Hemisphere. Located in a region prone to political unrest, where military rule has been a historical constant, Costa Rica has been able to avert the maladies of authoritarianism and human rights violations due to a series of decisions made after reaching independence precisely 200 years ago, in 1821. Two are generally considered central to the country’s progress: an early adherence to public education, and the establishment of a universal, solidarity-driven, social security system. There is however a third, unique and unusual decision that laid the foundation of Costa Rica’s internal stability and international peace: the abolition of the armed forces as a permanent institution in 1948, at the end of the country’s last civil war. During this seminar, Luis Guillermo Solís, former president of Costa Rica (2014-2018), will discuss the short and long-term implications of this extraordinary measure. Professors Kees Koonings and Dirk Kruijt, specialists on the role of the military in a number of Latin American societies, will reflect on experiences and current challenges in other parts of the region. In a roundtable discussion they will discuss the wider effects and possibilities for demilitarization that the Costa Rican example sets for the region at large ​ 8 22 Riverhood and River commons in Latin America and Europe​ River systems are fundamental for social and natural well-being.

    CEDLA Events 2020 nov 20 No More Innocence: Central America, Migration, and the Crisis of Containment Anthony Fontes, School of International Service. American University The Central American migration crisis has become a flashpoint in US national debates over humanitarian, identity and security politics. As such, it provides a key lens through which to consider how evolving structures-of-feeling shape US immigration policies as well as broader trends in US public sentiment about how to represent (and target) what some scholars have self-reflexively called “human waste” – that is, those who must be excluded by any means necessary. What are the submerged rules of engagement, so to speak, that so violently devalue the lives and deaths of Central American migrants—and other impoverished migrant populations around the world— in this historical moment? Drawing on fieldwork in Central America, US asylum courts, and migration routes through Mexico, this presentation explores the walls thrown up to contain and conceal the spectacles of insecurity and suffering driving Central Americans north.

    CEDLA Events 2020 DEC 4 The Sexual Question: A History of Prostitution in Peru, 1850s–1950s Paulo Drinot, UCL Institute of the America The creation of Lima's red light district in 1928 marked the culminating achievement of the promoters of regulation who sought to control the spread of venereal disease by medically policing female prostitutes. Its closure in 1956 was arguably the high point of abolitionism, a transnational movement originating in the 1860s that advocated that regulation was not only ineffective from a public health perspective, but also morally wrong. The Sexual Question charts this cyclic process of regulation and abolition in Peru, uncovering the ideas, policies, and actors shaping the debates on prostitution in Lima and beyond. The history of prostitution, Paulo Drinot shows, sheds light on the interplay of gender and sexuality, medicine and public health, and nation-building and state formation in Peru. With its compelling historical lens, this landmark study offers readers an engaging narrative, and new perspectives on Latin American studies, social policy, and Peruvian history.

    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.

She is an ethnographer with a BA in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology from the University of Amsterdam (2008), and an MA in Latin American Studies from the CEDLA (2009, cum laude). She obtained her PhD in Social Sciences from the University of Amsterdam (2018, cum laude), working at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR) and CEDLA. She is the current co-convener of the Anthropology of Confinement Network, founding member of the Red de Investigación Penitenciaria de las Américas (APRN-RISPA), and co-organizer of the Global Prisons Research Network. Between 2009 and 2016 she conducted 31 months of field research in Nicaragua with prisoners and former prisoners of three prison facilities. In 2019 she was visiting fellow to the University of Cambridge Institute of Criminology’s Prisons Research Centre (PRC). RESEARCH INTEREST Julienne is much interested in the politics of (dis)order and the entanglement of violence with governance. Her PhD research focused on Nicaraguan (former) prisoners’ experiences of imprisonment and the state and on their ‘performing’ of violence, governance, masculinities, and change. Simultaneously, however, it also sought to shed light on the development of Nicaragua’s hybrid carceral state and the intimate relation it projects between extralegality and the exercise of (state) power. This research culminated in the manuscript ‘Performing Prison: Power, Agency, and Co-Governance in Nicaraguan Prisons’. At present, following the 2018 anti-government protests, Julienne is conducting research on practices of (state) violence and authoritarianism in Nicaragua. This research project takes the key findings and material from her prisons research as its point of departure, combining it with new research on the changing practices and understandings of policing and confinement in Nicaragua today. In particular, it investigates the government’s strategies of repression and negotiation, as well as its crisis in legitimacy at the hand of its para-state organization, while also seeking to understand the protesters’ divergent claims to the state under the banner of 'justicia'. In doing so, it focuses on three areas: 1) the rearrangement of co-governance arrangements between powerful stakeholders, 2) the practices and claims to justice by groups of 'autoconvocados', (family members of) political prisoners and their associations, and 3) the state’s extralegal governance techniques (including torture and political imprisonment). Julienne is open to (co-)supervise MA/MSc and PhD projects in the areas of social/political anthropology and/or critical criminology (including prison and gender studies), on themes related to imprisonment, policing/crime control/criminalization, governance, corruption, violence, and/or gender/sexualities, from an ethnographic perspective and/or a regional focus on Latin- or Central America. Feel free to reach out for a talk. We are happy to announce that Dr. Julienne Weegels obtained a research grant from the new Kenniscentrum Ongelijkheid to work on an Amsterdam-based research project with dr. Thijs Jeursen (Universiteit Utrecht), Restorative Justice Netherlands and the "Kenniswerkplaats Vrijheidsbeneming and Maatschappij" (knowledge-workshop for freedom privation and society). The project will run for 18 months and is about the ways in which social, spatial and legal inequalities are produced, mitigated and reinforced through the Dutch criminal justice system. From neighbourhood policing to reinsertion after prison time, we'll be looking at the full range of crime control-based state interventions in the living environments and lives of young adults from different socioeconomic backgrounds. "Het Ongelijkheidsbeginsel" is a word-play on the principle of equality before the law, spinning it to mean the principle of inequality instead. It is an interdisciplinary, practice-oriented project at the crossroads of urban and legal anthropology, critical criminology and carceral geography, aimed at pealing apart and fighting cumulative inequalities. ​ LEARN MORE ABOUT IT

    Upcoming events sept 10 CEDLA Lecture: Sexual violence on trial. Impunity and transformative gender justice in post-conflict Latin America Jelke Boesten , King’s College London In 2016, the case known as ‘Sepur Zarco’ saw two military officers convicted for crimes against humanity and sexual and domestic slavery in Guatemala. Following the analysis of Jo-Marie Burt (2019), the case had transformative effects on the victim-survivors as well as on the idea of gender justice more broadly. Considering this remarkable trial and its effects, in this lecture Jelke Boesten asks if criminal justice for conflict related sexual violence can bring about transformative gender justice in Latin America by unpacking ongoing trials in Peru. There, during the counterinsurgency against Shining Path (1980-2000) the military used sexual violence just as systematically as in Guatemala in the 1980s. However, impunity persists. The paper will reflect on the ongoing court case against thirteen ex-military in Peru, known as ‘Manta y Vilca’, to examine whether these difficult processes contribute to what we might call ‘transformative gender justice’ in Latin America.

  • More money, more crime: A theory on rising crime in Latin America

    CEDLA Events 2021 MAY 21 More money, more crime: A theory on rising crime in Latin America Prof. Marcelo Bergman , Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (UNTREF), Argentina ​ In this lecture and his new book, Professor Bergman addresses the rapid rise of crime and violence in Latin America over the last decades, and offers an explanation to a striking paradox: In the midst of poverty reduction, economic growth, and democratization, crime rose in the eighteen countries of the region. Drawing from large data sets collected specifically for this project, he argues that crime has risen because it has become a profitable industry, and because weak states and outdated criminal justice systems have been unable to withstand the challenge posed by these new criminal enterprises. Prosperity has actually enhanced consumer demand for illicit goods fueling the growth of secondary and illegal markets, including those of stolen goods and narcotics which offer income opportunities for millions of youngsters willing to risk arrest and even their own lives. While some countries have experienced moderate increases in criminality, others have seen catastrophic rates of violence resulting in two types of stable equilibria: Low and high crime countries. He explains why these different equilibria have developed in the region, and discusses their undesired outcomes: serious predatory crime diversification, consolidation of organized crime, ineffective justice reforms, weak policing, and overcrowded prisons. ​ Zoom meeting 16:00-17:00 CEST online, register here to receive the link.

She obtained her Ph.D. from Uva at CEDLA, in June 2021. Her Ph.D. research examined and compared the utopian thought that is embedded in the policies that define hydroterritorial planning and ordering processes in Spain and Colombia. She analyzed their impact on the transformations of these hydrosocial territories and the responses of social movements for both countries. She has a large experience working in community conservation projects for co-management and collective use of high-altitude wetlands of the Colombian Andes. This was with The Alexander von Humboldt Biological resource Research institute, IAVH. She holds a bachelor's degree in Ecology from Javeriana, University, Bogotá, and a master's degree in International land and Water Management from the University of Wageningen, where she currently collaborates in two projects ‘River Commons ’ and ‘RIVERHOOD ’.

    Image by Steven Mason Out of gallery CEDLA Researchers Dr Arij Ouweneel Assistant Professor RESEARCH THEME: (PUBLIC) HISTORY, CULTURAL COGNITIVE STUDIES Arij Ouweneel is Associate Professor at CEDLA and was Special Professor of Historical Anthropology of the Amerindian Peoples at the Universiteit Utrecht from 1999 to 2004. He graduated cum laude in Social-Economic History at the Universiteit Leiden in 1983 and received his PhD cum laude in Social-Economic History at the same university in 1989. Over the past decade he changed from colonial history to contemporary public history and the cognitive cultural studies (psychology of art). RESEARCH INTEREST Ouweneel’s current field of study is public history. This field studies the representation of history in the public sphere. One line of inquiry in this field regards film makers, painters, or cartoonists as public historians in their own right. This is the line that stands central in Ouweneel’s current research, analyzing source material from Spain, Germany, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, Colombia, Argentina and Mexico. Theoretically, he tries to amend this work on public histories with insights from the cognitive sciences, especially the applied psychology of art. The essence of this is that in large measure information processing is mediated by learned or innate mental structures that organize related pieces of our knowledge. Because a narrative cultural memory is a specific cognitive schema, its parameters and elements can be identified analyzing artifacts. A specific focus of Ouweneel's investigations is on Amerindian history. He started his career writing about the self-confident position of Amerindians in Bourbon Mexico (Shadows over Anáhuac, The Flight of the Shepherd), but changed over the past decades to the history of the present (Terug naar Macondo, Freudian Fadeout, Resilient Memories). Recently he finished a manuscript on Frida Kahlo and the Intervening Agent, in Dutch and soon also in English. ​ SELECTED PUBLICATIONS 2018 Ouweneel, A. (2018).
