Julián Fernando Trujillo Amaya was part of the Quebec Node, under the direction and coordination of Professor Luis C. Sotelo, Director of the Listening Acts Laboratory (ALLab). Julian Fernando has been working on collecting, organizing, and researching testimonies from the Narco-World and Colombian victims, primary immigrants from the cities of Cali, Buenaventura, and Silvia in Montreal. Julián Trujillo is preparing a project on “Semiotic Coloniality and Narratives of the War on Drugs in the Cauca and Valle Communities affected by drug trafficking.” The research objective is to develop a critical interpretation of Narco-culture and the official discourse about the war on drugs, which generates negative identities, distorts historical memory, and glorifies the actors of violence in Colombia.
