Augsburg’s Center for Global Education and Experience (CGEE) is pleased to bring Dr. Fernanda Soto Joya to campus for a presentation about the current political and social climate in Nicaragua, as well as the ways that history and social change can be understood through the perspective of indigenous people in Guatemala.

Dr. Soto Joya is CGEE’s newest instructor in Central America, where she teaches the course “Cultural Conflict and Social Change in Latin America: The Central American Context”.

About Dr. Soto Joya:
Fernanda Soto Joya, PhD, is a Honduran/Nicaraguan anthropologist whose research includes mestizo and indigenous communities in the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua and Honduras. Her current projects include research with colleagues at Michigan State University, defining a feminist collaborative research project in Nicaragua; the Institute of Development Policy (IOB) at Antwerpen University in Belgium teaching a class on intersectionality and feminist decolonial thought; and Northumbria’s University in England on a memory project about the war in Nicaragua during the 1980s

This event is also part of International Education Week, from November 12-16, a national effort to promote increased global awareness at US college campuses and universities.
