Inicio / Programas / Colombia: Glance into Peace and Conflict through Culture and the Arts


Over a period of four weeks, the participant of this course will get to know the general aspects of the Colombian artistic culture involving the country’s conflict and peace process. Through lectures and in situ visits, the course aims to generate a firsthand experience about Colombian arts in relation to the country’s 20th century history, the period knows as The Violence and the signed of the Peace process in 2016.

During these four weeks, the participant will be able to consolidate and complement their competences in the use and understanding of Spanish. The initial Spanish competences will be analyzed, examined and classified based on a placement test made by the University of the Andes before the beginning of this course. Thus, through workshops (theoretical and practical methodology) and tutorials (personalized sessions), the Spanish component aims to introduce, contextualize, consolidate and familiarize the student with grammar, syntax and semantics in the Spanish language. At the same time, this program will contribute significantly to the experience of immersion in Colombian art, culture, history and politics.

As well, the participant will attend conferences about Social Sciences in Colombia and Latin America; the recent Colombian history in the political context of the last decades and the cultural imaginary. These conferences will have applicate workshops where the participants should contribute ideas, knowledge and observations related to their knowledge and impressions throughout their visit.

This summer course has being design by the School of Arts and Humanities and the Schools of Social Sciences – Universidad de los Andes.
