Event description: 

On April 5-6, 2024, Yale University will host Central American Futurities, the first international Central American studies conference to be hosted at the university and one of the first, if not the first, in the northeastern United States. The goals of the conference are to:

bridge conversations in the Central American diasporas and the isthmus;
center Black and Indigenous isthmian epistemologies and perspectives;
gather a transnational community to reframe thinking on how the region, its past, present, and future, are considered through, scholarship, arts, and activism;
construct an intellectual space that centers Central American arts, including poetry and performance;
communally develop a public Central American Futurities syllabus that empowers students and community members with access to resources and scholarship often excluded in course curriculum;
foster Central American community and engagement, and especially in the East Coast as Central American Studies continues to grow and develop.
We hope you can join us for this exciting gathering and look forward to being in conversation with the conference’s participants and attendees as we continue to (re)imagine the future of Central American Studies.
