The Symposium will bring together Black women scholars and Black intellectual activists to discuss about black women resistance practices in defending their collective territories, and how race and gender are key factors not only in the analysis of the socio-historical (re)configuration of political violence, but also in peace-building processes aimed to overcome the causes and effects of political violence in different countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.
