Julián Trujillo is part of The Quebec Node, under the direction and coordination of Professor Luis C. Sotelo, Director of the Acts of Listening Lab (ALLab). Julian has been working on collecting, organizing, and investigating the testimonies of the Narco-World and Colombian victims, primarily immigrants from the city of Cali, Buenaventura, and Santander. Julián is finishing his doctoral thesis entitled “The Colombian Narco-TV-Series on Netflix: semiotic coloniality and narratives on drugs war” at the Ph.D. in Humanities at Concordia University. Julián’s research objective is to develop a critical interpretation of the Narco-culture created by Netflix, which generates negative identities, falsify historical memory, and glorifies the infamous characters based on several actors of violence in Colombia.
