"Uneven Geographies of Haiti and the Dominican Republic."  Guest Speaker: Ainhoa Mingolarra Garaizar, PhD Student, Department of Geography, Maxwell School of Syracuse University.

Haiti and the Dominican Republic share the island known as Hispaniola in the Caribbean Sea and a border of 236 miles that divides the island into two halves. Both nations-to-be had a common history and territory before Cristobal Columbus arrived to the island in 1492. Ainhoa Mingolarra Garaizar will discuss how colonial and postcolonial histories have shaped uneven geographies on each side of the island, with episodes of conflict and cooperation, since the arrival of Columbus. 
Ainhoa Mingolarra Garaizar is a PhD Geography student at Syracuse University. Before beginning her PhD studies, she worked for several years at UNESCO in Ecuador and at the UNDP in Panama on socio-environmental projects. Her research interests focus on political ecology in Latin America.

Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
