Abstract

Imaginaries of the aftermath of urban violence straddle the present and potential future. In this seminar, we think through how urban reshaping after war is conceived of at multiple scales: the continuation of indigenous knowledge practices and mourning in Quibdó, alongside the question of land tenure reform in Juba. Through this, we think of how post-conflict imaginaries are suffused with the contested politics of the present, and come to be a site of resistance.
