Power and New Subjectivities: Other Places of the Political
Academic Unit: Faculty of Law and Political Sciences
Colombian Ministry of Science
The “Power and New Subjectivities: Other Places of the Political” Group responds to the need to address political issues, problems and phenomena not registered in the conventional fields of political science or overlooked from traditional perspectives and disciplinary approaches to the social sciences. In this sense, issues and phenomena related to peace, feminism, decoloniality, other epistemologies, and new citizenships have been addressed from the work of researchers belonging to the group and the different research seedbeds it accompanies.
Research Areas and Topics
- Culture, politics, and citizenships for peace
- Other epistemologies
- Politics, spirituality, and ancestral knowledge
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Conjoint work with the Cultura Viva Comunitaria of Medellin (Community Living Culture) network and the Valley of the Aburrá has been carried out. We also have collaborative work with the Actors, Processes, and Political Institutions Research Group — GIAPRIP, from Universidad del Cauca. In addition, we have made community outreach tasks jointly with the Government and the Public Issues Research Group from UdeA.
