Presentation

The 10th International Conference on Community Psychology and the Meeting of Socio-community Experiences in University Extension will be held between September 10 and 13th, 2024 at the University of the Republic in Montevideo.

We intend to bring together professors, students and professionals from various disciplines, as well as social organizations and the general public. People who share intentions and practices around the construction of community frameworks that seek to update and reinvent the common to build other possible lives and resist socio-economic-political situations that insist on denying them.

Community Psychology, as critical social psychology, has been nourished since its origins by the exchange of diverse knowledge, seeking to contribute to fight against multiple forms of oppression, prioritizing committed action and the co-production of situated knowledge. In the face of current emergencies, it is necessary to discuss, in political, cultural, social and subjective terms, the ways in which we want to reproduce life in common. To achieve this, it is essential to continue articulating perspectives that include renewed perspectives and the heterogeneity of experiences that take place in different latitudes and that are sustained by affective relational frameworks as alternative forms of politics in current situations.

The role that universities play is crucial. In a framework of cognitive capitalism where commercialization, privatization and expropriation of knowledge is the commonplace, it is necessary to subject them to questioning from a decolonial perspective. University extension, as a way for the communalization of knowledge, allows the training of professionals and the production of knowledge to be problematized in their potential to contribute to collective processes and their forms of resistance. There are multiple experiences that are developed from universities and from different disciplines – often articulated – that call themselves community or socio-community practices and that involve various actors, such as: unions, housing cooperatives, feminist groups, social economy networks and solidarity, neighborhood commissions, LGBTIQ+ groups, environmental organizations, self-care networks, Afro-descendant and indigenous groups, community radio stations, cultural and artistic groups, among others.

We hope that this event makes an opportunity to deepen exchanges and debates, to share experiences, to redefine and create, to recognize our powers; In short, to maintain joyful encounters that allow us to grow together and dream of other worlds…

We wait for you!!

What do we invite you to?

We are calling for the presentation of proposals in different modalitiesThey will become the support for interaction, dialogue and collective production. We want our way of meeting to challenge the borders: of the academy, of the word and of the language. For that reason, we are projecting ways of working that articulate presence, reflection, listening, learning, creation, body and joy. We seek to change the usual ways – hierarchical and academic – where experiences and knowledge are communicated but not always exchanged. We propose to give ourselves time to meet, building spaces for warm and quality conversation.
The design of visual communication, as well as the set of challenges that this event poses, share the vocation of collective construction. This involves a training process with students and teachers from our University (UdelaR) that will be evident from now on on the website and in general communication proposals. We invite you to join us and pay attention to this process!
