Abstract or Description

Ifor Duncan’s essay questions the land/water divide in western knowledge systems through an examination of the double disappearance of over 600 people over the construction of the Hidroituango Dam in Columbia. He argues that the recovery of the bodily remains from the river is threatened by the dam and its potential failure, reproducing the very logics that drove the original violent acts.
