This panel provides multiple perspectives to contextualize Teresa Margolles’ work within a larger socio-political framework.

Speakers include: Alberto Medina, Associate Professor in the Department of Latin American & Iberian Cultures at Columbia University who specializes in Latin American cultural studies; Pablo Piccato, Professor of History at Columbia University whose scholarship centers on the political and cultural history of Mexico and the history of crime; Roberta Villalón, Associate Professor of Sociology and Anthropology at St. John’s University, author of books on violence against Latina immigrants, collective memory, and justice motivations in Latin America.
