Zoom Session. Register here.
A talk in conjunction with the new exhibition in the Hanke Gallery in Sterling Memorial Library, Empire and Resistance: Transisthmian Views of Central America. “Empire and Resistance” demonstrates the long, contentious history that links the United States and the seven countries of Central America: Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panamá. The exhibition focuses on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, but the objects on display date from the sixteenth to twenty-first centuries, reflecting the shifting contours over time of empire and resistance to empire.
