The comic book Ayotzinapa: I live da de tok dem tells the story about the abduction of 43 young students in Mexico in 2014 and their parents' desperate struggle to find the truth about what happened to them. On 5. November, Camino Forlag and the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) organise an evening where we will explore how art can be used to inform and mobilise people in the struggle against oppression and injustice.
The seminar starts with the screening of a video interview with the author, Andalusia K. Soloff. The following panel discussion includes contributions from:
- Susanne Normann
Translator of the Norwegian edition of Ayotzinapa, and researcher at SUM
- Øyvind Holen
Author, journalist, and comic book expert
- Cindy Horst
Co-director of the Centre on Culture and Violence Conflict (CCC)
- Roy Krøvel
Professor at OsloMet and expert on violence in Latin America and Mexico
Øystein H. Rolandsen, PRIO, will chair the discussion.
This will be a hybrid event, with both a live audience, and a live stream for those who cannot attend in person.
