“Paisajes desbordados. El campo de refugiados en el horizonte contemporáneo” is a book about how the imminent presence of refugee camps in the media directs social attention to emergency situations, periodic crises that arouse impulses of humanitarian assistance or political responses to the violation of rights. However, when the passing of the fields ceases to be news, it is still landscape. And the landscape is, above all, a source of knowledge. Overflowing landscapes deals with the manifestations of contemporaneity when they give rise to changing configurations of displacements and waits.
