El Instituto de Estudios Latinoamericanos les invita a un seminario abierto


El Congreso de Panamá de 1826
y las lecturas del siglo XIX latinoamericano


La mayoría de los estudios sobre la primera gran empresa diplomática de la América antes española extrae sus conclusiones de los objetivos y los resultados inmediatos. Esta conferencia explora un aspecto complementario: el papel del Congreso de Panamá como referente fundamental para el conjunto de iniciativas integracionistas del siglo XIX. Munido de este enfoque, el autor pretende definir la influencia de Simón Bolívar sobre la agenda exterior hispanoamericana, corregir algunas aristas historiográficas del siglo fundacional y esbozar una teoría sobre los ciclos integracionistas latinoamericanos.


Conferencista:
Germán A. de la Reza es profesor investigador de la UAM (México) y del posgrado de la UNESP (Brasil). Es especialista en las dimensiones histórica y económica de la integración latinoamericana. De sus libros destacan La invención de la paz (premio “Pensamiento de América”) y Documentos sobre el congreso anfictiónico de Panamá, la compilación documental más importante sobre el tema.


Día y hora: Martes, 10 de octubre, 18:00-19:30
Lugar: Biblioteca del Instituto de Estudios Latinoamericanos, Universidad de Estocolmo, edificio B, planta 5ª.
Idioma: Español




¡Bienvenidos y bienvenidas!











The Institute of Latin American Studies invites you to a seminar on
 
Mens violence against women in Nicaragua

Then and now (1995 - 2015)

Coming straight from the U.S.A. and Nicaragua, Founding Director of the Global Womens Institute at George Washington University, Mary Ellsberg, and independent researcher, Margarita Quintanilla, will give a seminar on how the situation regarding violence against women in Nicaragua has changed over the past 20 years.

In 1995, Mary Ellsberg conducted interviews with five hundred women in León in northern Nicaragua. The study found that half of the interviewees had experienced domestic violence at some point in their lifetime, and that one out of four had been exposed to violence during the 12 months preceding the study. At first the results were contested, but later they led to a series of gender awareness initiatives and the strengthening of womens legal rights.

 

20 years later, Margarita Quintanilla conducted a similar series of interviews with more than a thousand women in the same area; some of them daughters or granddaughters of the women interviewed twenty years ago. The findings from the recently concluded study will be presented in the light of the many contextual changes that have occurred in Nicaragua since the first interviews were conducted. During the seminar, Mary Ellsberg and Margarita Quintanilla will share their views on the conclusions that can be drawn from the studies and the legal strategies implemented to prevent violence against women in Nicaragua.


Lecturers:
 
Mary Ellsberg is the Founding Director of the Global Womens Institute at the George Washington University in Washington DC, a university-wide institution dedicated to producing policy-oriented research to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. She has more than 30 years of experience in international research and program work on gender and public health issues. Dr. Ellsberg earned a doctorate in epidemiology and public health from Umeå University and a bachelors degree in Latin American studies from Yale University. Her connection to global gender issues also stems from living in Nicaragua for nearly 20 years working in public health and womens rights programs. She carried out the first Latin American study on the prevalence of domestic violence in Leon, Nicaragua in 1995, entitled Candies in Hell.  She is the author of over 50 books and articles on gender-based violence and was a member of a core research team of the World Health Organization and co-author of the UN Secretary Generals In-Depth Report on Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG).

Margarita Quintanilla has a Masters Degree in Public Health and Health Management from the Andalusian School of Public Health in Granada, Spain, and a medical degree from the Nicaraguan National Autonomous University (UNAN-León) in León. Her experience includes the coordination of and participation in different innovative technical processes aimed at improving women and adolescents health situation of Nicaragua and other Central American countries. These have included the development of novel approaches for addressing complex issues such as sexual and reproductive health among pre-adolescents and adolescent pregnancy prevention. She has also promoted different innovative approaches and methodologies to improve the prevention of and response to violence against women and girls.
