Wendy Vera

Studied psychology at EAFIT University where she currently works as a research assistant for the project “health effects of the establishment of a library”. community at La Cruz-comuna 3 and where he studied for a master’s degree in literary hermeneutics.

 

Her graduate work was entitled “Self-knowledge in Dostoysky’s Memories of the Underground, a Perspective between Literature and Psychology”. Since she was a child she had a strong inclination and love of books. From my experience in promoting reading and my approaches to social realities began to generate connections between the psychology and literature, which was later consolidated in the creation of the Sueños de Papel Community Center located in La Cruz-Manrique. I have participated in events as the National Congress of Psychology where I exposed the psychological and social intervention which can be done in a community library, which tends to meet

subjectivities and collectivities. I believe in the power of letters to transform realities social and therefore in my work and study I bet on the libraries as spaces of I find that they tend towards dialogue and the exchange of knowledge.
