Map of NicaraguaProfessor Marjorie Zambrano-Paff aims to recount the historical and socio-political events that have shaped Nicaragua’s history from Somoza’s dictatorship until today. An eyewitness account of war, of revolution, and of survival will be part of the presentation on Tuesday, February 26.

This is part 1 of the Latin American Studies Spring 2019 Series.

Zambrano-Paff, an associate professor in the Department of Foreign Languages at IUP, is a native of Managua, Nicaragua, who had to leave her country due to political unrest. In 1985 she and her brother found themselves fleeing the Sandinista’s government to a new country without family or friends. At the tender age of 16, Zambrano-Paff began her new life in Costa Rica and eventually came to the United States.
