Christopher Courtheyn, a professor of global studies in the School of Public Service, was invited to present at the University of Minnesota’s Department of Geography, Environment and Society’s “Coffee Hour” seminar series. He shared insights from his book “Performing Geographies of Ecological Dignity in Colombia,” published in 2022. The talk presented an analysis of ethnicity and multiculturalism in Latin America, along with ecological peacebuilding in Colombia’s Peace Community of San José de Apartadó, to articulate global theories of race, social movements and peace.
Support for the book’s research and publication was provided by the Inter-American, Tinker and Mellon Foundations, the Institute for the Study of the Americas and Graduate School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Universidad del Rosario Research Unit and School of Public Service Research Committee at Boise State University.
