A Kellogg Work-in-Progress Seminar with Visiting Fellow Denisa Jashari.

Denisa Jashari
Kellogg Institute Visiting Fellow
Assistant Professor of Latin American History, University of North Carolina, Greensboro

Jashari’s paper, which stems from her larger research project is tentatively titled, “The Vía Crucis: Cartographies of Religious Protest and Political Dissent during Chile’s dictatorship, 1973-1990.”  Using documents from the popular Christian communities, oral interviews, press accounts, and spatial analysis, this paper reveals how religious processions became public events to voice anti-dictatorship dissent through the Catholic Church. Mapping the processions’ routes using Geographic Information System mapping (GIS) grants new insights into how city space was historically seized to express popular opposition to the Augusto Pinochet regime.

Registration Required.
