“Attending to the Pulses of the Territory: Local Officers, National Parks and Indigenous Territories in Colombia"

Presented by Paula Ungar, Instituto de Investigación de Recursos Biológicos Alexander von Humboldt, Bogotá, Colombia

Event Details

Tuesday, November 5, 2019
12:30-1:30 p.m.
In Colombia, the management of National Parks that are superimposed on Indigenous territories has to be agreed between governmental and Indigenous authorities. I will tell the stories of how, in these co-managed parks, hand in hand with local officers, otherwise impossible hybrids of human and non-human, physical and metaphysical entities irrupt in conventional conservation politics.

Lunch and beverages will be served on a first-come, first-served basis.
