Violence in contemporary Latin America is book topic
Professor Gabriela Polit presents her latest publication, "Meanings of Violence in Contemporary Latin America." Gloria Gonzalez-Lopez, associate professor of sociology, serves as discussant.

This volume addresses the proliferation of increasingly complex forms of violence, a situation now perceived to be both among the most pressing issues faced by Latin America in our times and a reality with multiple ramifications, marking the socio-political landscape of the region in decisive ways. With contributions by scholars from various fields, this book examines not only the manifestations and the effects of violence but also the social acts that surround it and make it meaningful.

Polit is an assistant professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. Her research interests include contemporary Latin American narrative, gender and politics in literary writing and the representation of drug trafficking and violence in Latin America.
