  • Sponsor: Politics

Dr. Arely Zimmerman interrogates the shifting boundaries of citizenship through the lense of Central American communities in the United States, a diaspora that has faced violent displacement from their countries of origin as well as legal and socio-political exclusions in the United States, and shows how their grassroots activism is redefining notions of membership and belonging in the context of their everyday struggles for rights, representation, and inclusion in multiple polities.

Refreshments will be served.
