Pedro F Quijada
Interested in exploring processes/events such as the Mexican Miracle, the Ten Years of Spring in Guatemala, the Costa Rican Civil War, the military reforms of the 1970s in Honduras, and the 1948 Revolution in El Salvador. The study of these events has led me to find sources and information that can contest visions of Central America being primarily a poor, underdeveloped, war-torn, and generally chaotic region. Interested as well in the study of memory formation, the use of testimonies for the recovery of forgotten/hidden histories, and in the preservation of non-traditional archives in alternative (virtual) spaces. My general research interests are: History of Central America, Migration, Memory Studies, Archives, History and Literature, Music & History.
