Join the UC Davis Hemispheric Institute on the Americas on Wednesday for a talk by noted authors/researchers Paul Dix and Pamela Fitzpatrick. They will be sharing images and commentary from their book, “Nicaragua: Surviving the Legacy of U.S. Policy,” in the Andrews Conference Room, 2203 Social Science & Humanities Building at UCD.
This book is the result of a 26-year-long project. Dix was in Nicaragua from 1985 to 1990 as a photojournalist (with Witness for Peace), documenting the impacts of the war on the Nicaraguan people. Beginning in 2002, Fitzpatrick and Dix returned to Nicaragua to find, photograph and record testimonies of victims of the contra war — people Dix had previously photographed up to 20 years earlier.
This book — about the aftermath of war and the long-term impacts of U.S foreign policies — is the culmination of that work. For more information, visit hia.ucdavis.edu.
