Ana’s research interests are located in the contexts of violence that developed in Colombia from the 1960s onwards. Ana has conducted ethnographic research with victim’s movements and their strategies around historical memory. For her master’s thesis, she explored Colombian state narratives on war and peace disseminated in mass media. Ana’s doctoral research focuses on the role of Colombian intellectuals informing how peacebuilding projects are envisioned by the state and other social actors. Ana is a 2017-2018 Darby Fellow. As a Kellogg Doctoral Student Affiliate she was awarded a Kellogg Graduate Research Grant this Summer (2018) for the project "Colombia: Violence and Democracy": The Violentologists and the 1991 Constitution.
I'm interested in the intellectual and political history of the study of violence in Colombia with a specific focus on the 1980s period.
