Speaker: Elizabeth Corredor, Bryn Mawr
Professor Corredor, a Temple and Latin American Studies Semester alumna, is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science at Bryn Mawr College. She received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University in Political Science in 2021. She also has an M.A. in Latin American Studies from the University of Chicago (2006), and a certificate in Women and Gender Studies from Rutgers University (2018). Dr. Corredor has extensively studied recent electoral processes in Colombia and argues that to better understand the gendering of peace negotiations and agreements at large, we must not only look at how many and which women are at the table, but also at the gendered and spatial logics of peace negotiations to understand the gendered outcomes in peace agreements. Using the 2010-2016 Colombian peace process as a case study, she draws on an original framework that traces the efforts, locations, and gendered logics of both women’s and LGBTIQ+ groups, as well as those of the negotiation table, to unearth the ways in which women’s and LGBTIQ+ groups’ agendas were accepted, co-opted, and/or resisted within the negotiations and final agreement.
