A lecture on the Colombian armed conflict

On Thursday October 30th at 6pm, photojournalist Stephen Ferry will give a lecture on the armed conflict in Colombia, where he worked for about ten years documenting violence. While showing his work, he will refer to the history of the war, the formation of the main guerrilla groups, the relation between paramilitarism and the state, and civil forms of resistance, from a human rights approach. He will also discuss the challenges of reporting in a context of armed conflict and respond to questions from the students.

Mary Roldán, Dorothy Epstein Professor of Latin American History at CUNY, will comment the presentation.

The event is organized by OLA and Somos OLA student organization.
