About us

MISSION: Our interdisciplinary dialogue group welcomes students, faculty members and others to the enlightenment of circumstances related to the armed conflict, free trade agreements, human rights issues and the peace dialogues between the Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), as well as general information about Colombia and its relation to the United States.


EVENTS: The group will hold monthly meetings for social and organizational purposes. In addition to these meetings we will also organize Conferences, Readings, Films and Round Tables. These events have a social component, since they offer an opportunity for students and faculty from various disciplines to come together, network and consider working jointly in the future.


MEMBERSHIP: We are open to all Graduate Center students and welcome participation from other CUNY faculty and students, as well as those from other institutions. We will maintain a list serve of over 23 members; our active participants will include students in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages, Comparative Literature, History, Anthropology, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology and Theater.

Every year, two Graduate Center students who are either selected or who volunteer will run the group. There are no formal elections. The Co-Chairs share the responsibilities of scheduling and running monthly meetings, organizing events, and applying for funding.
