Please join us for a talks @ pulitzer on Thursday, January 16, when we welcome Dominic Bracco II, Jeremy Relph and Mattathias Schwartz for a focus on Honduras, once an oasis of relative tranquility in Central America, that is now experiencing increased instability.

With their project, "Honduras: Aqui Vivimos" ("Honduras: We Live Here"), Bracco and Relph explore the social conditions—abject poverty, corruption, political disillusionment, and gang culture—that have made Honduras a violent country. Schwartz takes a close look at how Honduras is emerging as a new front line in the battle against drug cartels and explores the larger dynamics of an indigenous population caught in the middle. His reporting takes him to La Moskitia, one of the world's least-governed regions and the focus for both the South American drug traffickers and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.)

Schwartz's article was published in the January 6 print issue of The New Yorker, and Bracco and Relph's work was featured on the magazine's website.

Light reception at 5:30 pm followed by remarks at 6 pm.
