Panel description: Join us for an exciting panel discussion in which reproduction and sexuality will be at the center to understand how they have animated recent political debates and transitions (Briggs, 2017) in Latin America. Looking at the pre-post conflict state (Theidon 2007) in Colombia and Peru, the participants in this round table will reflect on the conflicting implications of reproduction and sexuality in transitional justice, the functioning of the law, and violence.
About the panelists: Pascha Bueno-Hansen is an Associate Professor of Women and Gender Studies at the University of Delaware, USA.
