The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice, in collaboration with the University of Texas’ Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies, College of Communication, Department of History, Harry Ransom Center and the Rothko Chapel of Houston, will center its Fourth Annual conference around the recent acquisition by the Harry Ransom Center of a historic collection of photojournalistic work documenting El Salvador’s 12-year civil war. In the spirit of the Rapoport Center, the conference will bring together a multidisciplinary group of academics, activists, artists and policy-makers to explore the relationship between the local and the global, as well as the economic and the political.

"Inside El Salvador," a photography exhibition of more than 100 black-and-white images concerning the country's civil war and its aftermath, will run from April 17 through August 3, 2008, at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas.
