This talk will examine the testimonies of the Association of Returned Migrants with Disabilities (AMIREDIS), a group organized in Honduras that sought to confront the United States with the dangers and potential mutilations that migrants face in the journey northward from Central America. By analyzing their manner of transnational protest in conversation with how members emplot their experiences through testimony, I suggest that AMIREDIS reimagines the social and cultural logic of remittances—payments issued to home countries by laborers abroad. Lunch is provided: Please RSVP to wgrc@dickinson.edu.
