Geopoetics, imaginations and memories between El Paso and Ciudad Juárez
Mauricio Vera Sánchez, PhD. shares his doctoral research, developed with the help of academic colleagues from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, titled Geopoéticas, memoria e imaginarios en la frontera México-Estados Unidos. Which he wishes to share with people interested and open to possibilities of thinking about the border from more than a political or military stance, but from a sensitive and creative one, and as an aesthetic place.
Vera Sánchez received his Doctorate in Social Studies from the Universidad Externado de Colombia and is a social communicator from the same institution, with postgraduate degrees in Television from the Pontifical Javierian University and in esthetic from the National University of Colombia. Vera Sánchez is currently the research leader of the Fisura group and a graduate and undergraduate teacher in Communication at the National Open and Distance University (UNAD) in Colombia.
