Social Sciences - Journalism / coloquio sobre las secuelas sicológicas de la guerra
Spanish term or phrase: en otra de mesas del coloquio
[b]​En otra de mesas[/b] del coloquio, la investigadora X X, de la Facultad de Medicina de X, presentó un trabajo realizado con una familia víctima del crimen. Entre las secuelas que presentaban sus miembros, incluso años después del suceso violento, estaban pesadillas recurrentes y la sensación de pérdida de control sobre la propia vida. Rompieron sus vínculos sociales, quedaron solos y aislados, abandonaron la dimensión política de su vida.

Explanation:
I assume it should be "de las mesas", but correct me if I'm wrong.

This is the literal translation, but you could translate the whole thing as "elsewhere" - "del coloquio" is redundant, as we already know it's about a conference.

agree  Chris Neill: I think this deals better with "coloquio", which implies debate more than presentation

neutral  philgoddard: Colloquy is a very obscure word. Coloquio just means conference. Also, it should be "at", not "of".
