I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of California, San Diego. My scholarship and creative work has focused on representations of the Colombian armed conflict and the fitful efforts to build a lasting peace in that Andean country. I bring an interdisciplinary perspective to my work, combining socio-cultural anthropology, media studies, and the documentary arts. This site has some information about my projects. 

Here’s my CV. You can contact me via afattal@ucsd.edu.
