Borders and Movements Part 2: “U.S. Foreign Policy, Refugees, & Immigrants” 9/8/19 at 2pm

Selected date

Sunday September 8

Selected time

2:00 PM  –  3:30 PM

 

Join us for an in-depth discussion on U.S. and Central America relations and transnational activism. Dr. Keeley will explain how the current migration problem is not an isolated event, but the result of U.S. military intervention and U.S. policy toward Central America more generally. Beginning with a focus on U.S. policy in the 1980s, Dr. Keeley will lead the conversation towards a broader focus on migration. 

 

Dr. Keeley’s talk will be followed by a discussion led by Sarah C. Nuñez, Assistant Director of the Cultural Center at the University of Louisville and Karina Barillas, Director of La Casita Center, incorporating community members. This discussion will focus on responses to U.S. immigration policy.

 

This event is presented in conjunction with the Speed exhibition Yinka Shonibare CBE: The American Library. This exhibition is co-presented with 21c Museum Hotel.

 

The “Borders and Movement” series was organized in partnership with La Casita Center, and the University of Louisville’s Cultural Center’s Hispanic and Latino Initiatives, the Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Society, and the Department for Latin American and Latino Studies.
