Additional Information

Beginning in the 1980s, large waves of Central Americans have been migrating to the United States. Facing legal, political, economic and social barriers, the immigrant community has focused largely on survival, while Central Americans in the isthmus adapt to massive outmigration. The details of these experiences have mainly gone untold.

In this speaker series, a new generation of U.S.-based Central American scholars shares poignant research on their own communities' struggles and achievements across borders.
