Contribution of literature in the resignification of the concept of violence in the context of post-agreement. new representations of violence in a corpus of colombian novels written from exile between 2000 and 2016. "

Project Details


Sooner or later, writes the novelist and essayist william ospina: "war must learn to become dialogue, violence must learn to become a social demand and silence must learn to become narrative (ospina, 2013). in the awakening that favors the peace agreement signed between the colombian government and the farc guerrillas, on september 26, 2016, ospina's phrase articulates with renewed urgency the need to work on overcoming a history of violence that for more than of half a century has been part of the colombian national culture and collective identity. facing the immense challenges of a national reconciliation project that has not yet begun, the literature written by colombian authors with a transnational perspective, will play a crucial role that explicitly compromises the question of how new forms of representation of our violent past can foster the conditions for a more viable and desirable future.


Characterize the type of representations of violence present in the colombian literature of the 21st century written by contemporary colombian authors who have lived outside of colombia and their contribution in the resignification of historical trauma, critical memory and the configuration of identities, in the context of the postconflict
