Keynote Speaker: Dr. Cecilia Rivas 

In this presentation, Dr. Rivas discusses research in Central America, drawing on recent conversations and scholarship about migration, mobility, identity, and transnationalism. Cultures of migration, media, and flexible labor (such as bilingual call centers) have transformed El Salvador. What can be the effects of inclusion and exclusion from these transformations and global processes? How is El Salvador—and Central America more generally—constituted in media portrayals? To address these questions, Dr. Rivas focuses on media sources, texts, and interviews as she examines how Salvadoran imaginaries are formed and sustained.
