ISA Global Conversation Series Presents - Virtual Roundtable on Colombia: Feminist, Decolonial and Intercultural Politics in the Popular Resistance in Cali

A series of ongoing protests began in Colombia on 28 April 2021 against the militarised anti-popular nature of governmental politics and the state and reforms including a regressive taxation policy and health care reforms which would augment strategies of privatisation and commodification. Mass protests erupted all over the country with the epicentre being Cali, in the Valle de Cauca where there are strong lineages of feminist, decolonial and inter-cultural popular politics and organising. The protests and re-occupations of urban spaces with art, ritual, dialogue and multiple popular voices and repertoires of protest often excluded from formal politics were met with extrajudicial violence and repression across the whole country, including gendered violence and sexual harm perpetrated by the over 2500 police, riot police and the military sent to the city of Cali alone.

Open exchange is essential to academic freedom, and external speakers should be free to give invited presentations of their research, without having to demonstrate that their research is not unlawful.

Vaccine and Mask Requirements for ISA2022 in Nashville

Vaccine and Mask Requirements for ISA2022 in Nashville: Health and Safety is Our Highest Priority

Everyone at ISA looks forward to welcoming you in person in Nashville, TN in March 2022. As a result, we want to reassure all of our prospective attendees that we are diligently working to provide a safe and comfortable convention environment.  

With this in mind, ISA2022 convention attendance requires all in-person attendees to provide evidence of full vaccination against Covid-19 prior to being admitted to the convention site.

Over the past few months, ISA HQ staff have attended a number of conferences where the industry standard is to require anyone attending in-person meetings to be fully vaccinated. As a result, ISA is upholding the high standards of the conventions industry as well as following current US CDC guidance. Please note that vaccinations should be full and complete no later than March 1, 2022. In addition, masks will be required for all attendees regardless of vaccination status while indoors, other than when eating or drinking.
