UNICEF at Carolina is hosting its first event in their Speaker Series this semester. The speaker will be Dr. Ariana E. Vigil, Assistant Professor in the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies and an affiliate of the Program in Latina/o Studies here at UNC-CH. She is also the author of War Echoes: Gender and Militarization in U.S. Latina/o Cultural Production.
She will be discussing Central American migrants, many of whom are children and endure gender-based violence either in their countries of origin, while travelling through Mexico, or at the hands of enforcement agents within Mexico or the United States.This fits perfectly with the United Nations global goals theme for February, which is awareness of Domestic Violence and Gender Equality.
