CERUTTI, Débora-Andrea. Cartography of (D)enunciated and (Em)plotted Violence: Methodological Proposal for the Analysis of Conflicts Regarding Extractive Projects. Letras Verdes [online]. 2022, n.32, pp.7-23.  Epub Feb 01, 2022. ISSN 1390-6631.

The article proposes a tool for the analysis of the complexity of violence in Latin American territories where extractive projects are deployed, and there are communities that resist mega mining extractivism. The objective is to socialize a methodological proposal within the framework of research on violence and extractivism. Throughout qualitative and quantitative approaches, chromatic “series” for the characterization and analysis of violence, together with a systematization of it in a “casuistry of violence” and its translation into a cartographic language are exposed. Thus, the proposal is presented as political and critical, of denunciation and verification of the damages in the territories, present or future.

Keywords : cartography; mining; social conflicts; violence.
