Amelia Frank-Vitale’s research examines how Hondurans navigate life after being deported back to neighborhoods labeled as some of the world’s most violent. Her work connects regional immigration and security policies, organized crime, state violence, and the everyday experience of life in and around San Pedro Sula. She has been published in Geopolitics, Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Studies, EntreDiversidades, and Public Anthropologist. Her commentary has also appeared in The Washington Post, Fortune magazine, NACLA Report on the Americas, ContraCorriente, and the World Policy Journal.

Hosted by Esther Schor, the Leonard L. Milberg '53 Professor of American Jewish Studies and professor of English.
