Communists, Criminals, and Caravans: the Social Construction of Central Americans as Crisis

Fri, March 12, 2021 12:00 PM at Zoom

JMC is pleased to welcome Dr. Leisy J. Abrego, Professor of Chicana/o Studies at UCLA. Dr. Abrego will provide political and social context for U.S.-Central American relations from the 1980s to the present to better understand how U.S. foreign policies in the region and immigration policies at home shape the current situation.

Trained in sociology, Dr. Abrego studies Central American migration, U.S. intervention in Central America, Latina/o/x families, and the production of “illegality” through U.S. immigration laws. She is the author of the award-winning book, Sacrificing Families: Navigating Laws, Labor, and Love Across Borders (Stanford 2014).
