La puesta en relato de la violencia bipartidista colombiana en la prensa extranjera

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article expands Daniel Pécaut’s ideas regarding the difficulty of elaborating a historical narrative able to provide intelligibility to the phenomena of violence in Colombia through an empirical work that addresses and explores this issue in the international media setting. The aim is to describe and analyze a series of narratives made by foreign journalists between 1946 and 1958 about the period known as “la Violencia.” By examining these narratives, the articles seeks to demonstrate how the construction of the meaning of violent events in Colombia has not only been a challenge and a difficulty experienced by Colombians but also by external observers; in this particular case, by foreign journalists covering the events of the conflict between Liberals and Conservatives during the 1940s and 1950s
