Dana Frank on "Why are the Migrants Fleeing Honduras?"

  • Knight Library Browsing Room 1501 Kincaid St. Eugene, OR 97403 (map)

The UO Center for Latino/a & Latin American Studies presents Dana Frank, Professor of History Emerita at the University of California, Santa Cruz. In this presentation she will discuss her new book, “The Long Honduran Night: Resistance, Terror, and the United States in the Aftermath of the Coup,” which examines Honduras since the 2009 coup that deposed democratically-elected President Manuel Zelaya. In the book, she interweaves her personal experiences in post-coup Honduras and in the US Congress with a larger analysis of the coup regime and its ongoing repression, Honduran opposition movements, U.S. policy in support of the regime, and Congressional challenges to that policy.
