Jessica Stites Mor will present on a recent volume she edited that explores artistic production in solidarity movements in Latin America. This multidisciplinary anthology reveals the tremendous role that art and performance have played in the quest for social justice in the Americas. Case studies include artistic solidarity in the aftermath of the Honduran coup, feminist photography in Mexico, and tapestries in Chile.
