Diana Carolina García Gómez

Postdoctoral R & T Fellow

Childhood Studies, Children's Rights, Political Subjectivities and Children, Global Studies, Media Studies, Transitional Contexts.

Diana's work examines and centers children and youth participation in peace-building as a node for studying how processes of collective memory and peace education affect young people's self-constructions and political identities. Her multidisciplinary approach to the Colombian post-accord context draws from the fields of childhood studies, museum studies, memory studies and political philosophy. She also combines Latin-American scholarship, decolonial and postcolonial theories and ethnographic methods.
