The Zolberg Institute for Migration and Mobility presents a screening of the documentary Harvest of Empire

Based on Juan Gonzalez’s book, Harvest of Empire exposes the history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the waves of migration it induced. The film offers a fearless look at the growing Latino presence in the United States, bringing the U.S. attempts at territorial expansion and commercial advancement into the immigration narrative.

The film screening will be followed by a discussion with Ann Stoler (Professor of Anthropology and History at NSSR), Alyshia Galvez (former Director of CUNY’s Mexican Studies Institute), and the social justice organization, Make the Road NYC to talk about postcolonial legacies across the Americas, and ways of contesting the contemporary border landscape as engaged scholars and activists. Latin American food and refreshments will be served.

This is a featured event within the Zolberg Institute’s performance and film series: pictures in motion. of motion. for motion.
