Workshop: 
CORE: Critical Orientations to Race and Ethnicity
Meeting Description: 

In this symposium, we aim to engage with critical scholars and topics emerging from the field of Central American studies. What social scientific and interdisciplinary tools are available for studying the formation of identity among Central American migrant populations? How can we study resilience, community formation, and resistance among communities experiencing intense violence from the nation-state? How do Central American scholars tackle the difficulties of working with vulnerable populations who have experienced trauma and who exist within a complicated, diverse diasporic community? What does it mean to be working within the field of Central American studies?

Dr. Ester Trujillo is an assistant professor of Latin American and Latino studies at DePaul University in Chicago and a Visiting Scholar at the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America at Brown University.

Dr. Jorge E. Cuéllar is Mellon Faculty Fellow and assistant professor in Latin American, Latino, & Caribbean studies at Dartmouth College. Cuéllar is an interdisciplinary scholar whose research focuses on the politics of everyday life in modern Central America.
