Presentation Institute of Socio-Historical Studies Fray Alonso de Zamora, OP

What is the Institute about?

In the year 2010 the Superior Council of the University Santo Tomás approved the creation of the Institute of Historical Studies Fray Alonso de Zamora. In the year 2012 it was approved to include the expression Socio-Historical Studies, as part of the denomination of the Institute in order to extend its radius of action to other disciplines of the human and social sciences.

The Ieshfaz is an organ of production and strengthening of the sense of belonging of the Tomasina community and the Colombian nation, through the generation of research and reflection spaces in the fields of human and social sciences, in articulation with the teaching processes and social projection developed by the USTA multicampus.

Who we are

Socio-historical studies provide elements for the construction of identity, recognizing institutional, local and national values. In a globalized world where these local values ​​vanish with the threat of new patterns that blur the ideals of a fair and inclusive society, it is necessary to inquire into the factors that constitute and form our identity.

Mission

The mission of the Ieshfaz is to formulate, develop, collect, discuss and disseminate research from different disciplinary approaches of the human and social sciences, with special attention to the role of the USTA and the Order of Preachers in the configuration of national life.
