Research Seminar: Reparations and reproductive violence – The case of children born of conflict-related sexual violence in Colombia
November 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Researcher Dr Tatiana Sanchez Parra (Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action Fellow, University of Edinburgh Politics and International Relations) shares her work on reproductive justice from a chapter of her upcoming book, ‘Born of War in Colombia: Reproductive Violence and Memories of Absence’.
Tatiana Sanchez Parra works on issues related to feminist peacebuilding, reproductive justice, and reproductive violence in contexts of war and political transitions. Her research is situated at the intersection of feminist studies, socio-legal studies, and Latin American studies.
Her current project, ‘Advancing Gender Justice, Tackling Reproductive Violence: Forced Parenthood in Contexts of War’, focuses on the experiences of cisgender women and transgender men who are parenting children born of conflict-related sexual violence in Colombia. Through a collaborative, ethnographic, and arts-based approach, the project seeks to: (1) offer a comprehensive understanding of diverse experiences of these forms of parenthood; (2) advance knowledge regarding justice and redress for these cases; (3) facilitate knowledge exchange to render visible and address these experiences of parenthood.
Tatiana is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Fellow in the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh.
Tatiana holds a PhD in Sociology from the University of Essex, where she also obtained a Master’s degree in Human Rights. Prior to her studies in the UK, Tatiana completed a Master’s in Social Anthropology at the Universidad de Los Andes, where she also studied her undergraduate degree in Social Anthropology. Before starting her current position at the University of Edinburgh, Tatiana worked as an Assistant Professor at Instituto de Estudios Sociales y Culturales Pensar of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (Colombia) and as a consultant for the Global Survivors Fund (Switzerland).
