Mirzam Perez takes a long pause while looking through newspaper articles and photographs in the research room at the Latin American Library in Howard-Tilton Memorial Library. Perez, a Tulane alumna and associate professor in the department of Spanish at Grinnell College, returned to Tulane to investigate the circumstances that led to her grandfather's exile from Honduras in the aftermath of the massacre of July 6, 1944 in San Pedro Sula. Her research will inform an upcoming op-ed article about exile and the devastating effects it can have on family ties and memory.
