The Graduate Association for Latin American Studies (GALAS) at New York University fosters academic and cultural discourse while promoting social and professional networking between all NYU graduate students and the broader Latin American and Caribbean Community.
GALAS is organizing a photographic exhibition that will run from April 7, 2014 to May 4, 2014 at the Stoval Gallery at New York University’s Kimmel Center.
The exhibition "Stories of El Salvador: The Civil War and Its Aftermath" will tell the history of the Civil War in El Salvador and the role of women during and after the conflict. The aim is to tell women’s inspiring stories and share their hope, wisdom and dedication to the world, to make people reflect upon different forms of activism.
The story will be told utilizing the photojournalism archive of the North American Congress on Latin American (NACLA) and through the inclusion of portraits from the Mujeres de la Guerra Project by the activists Lyn McCracken and Theodora Simon.
A film series and symposium will accompany the exhibition to further discuss the themes it raises.
