• Our May-August issue is now on line


    This May-August 2020 issue of Íkala found us all going through a very difficult time as a humanity. We hope that you, our readers, co-editors, guest-editors, editorial and scientific committee members, reviewers and potential authors, are all safe and sound, and can get through this global turmoil not only unhurt but also renewed.

    The issue brings a very interesting set of research, and review articles. Additionally, we are featuring a sample of the work by the internationally acclaimed Colombian artist Manuel Guerrero Mora, to whom we want to extend the most sincere thanks for letting us use his work so generously. Thank you, maestro! We believe that his oeuvres are a perfect accompaniment for the articles in this issue, as in many ways these reflect the variety and rigor of our authors' work. read more
