Roots of Central American migration

Chomsky_central americaSalem State University Professor of History Avi Chomsky will present from her recent book, Central America’s Forgotten History: Revolution, Violence, and the Roots of Migration (Beacon Press, 2021), at a Boston College event on March 17 at 12 noon in McElroy Commons, room 237. In Central America’s Forgotten History, Chomsky traces the roots of displacement and migration in Central America from the Spanish conquest to the present day, concluding that the more immediate roots of migration from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras lie in the wars and in the U.S. interventions of the 1980s and the peace accords of the 1990s. This will be a hybrid event with in-person and online options. Sponsor: Boston College’s Center for Human Rights and International Justice. RSVP for in-person or online (Zoom) option at
