Christopher Courtheyn, assistant professor of global, urban, and environmental studies in the School of Public Service, recently published his ethnography of political conflict and peace-building in Colombia. Community of Peace: Performing Geographies of Ecological Dignity in Colombia demonstrates how rural communities forge community development and global solidarity movements against war, racism, and environmental exploitation, the author said

Courtheyn was invited to launch the book at the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of California, Berkeley in April and a translation of the book into Spanish was released by the Editorial Universidad del Rosario.

Courtheyn presented the book on a panel with two Colombian colleagues at the Bogotá Book Fair on April 20 and that presentation can be viewed on YouTube.
