Lotti Silber’s work explores postwar processes in one of El Salvador's former warzones and a region known for its peasant revolutionary participation. Her interests include the anthropology of Central America, Latino studies, transnationalism, gender, postwar societies, and social movements. Silber’s book on postwar El Salvador is included in the new Rutgers University Press series on Genocide, Political Violence, and Human Rights spearheaded by Alex Hinton:
Silber, Irina Carlota. 2011. Everyday Revolutionaries: Gender, Violence, and Disillusionment in Postwar El Salvador. Genocide, Political Violence, Human Rights Series. New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press.
Lotti continues to pursue a longitudinal and comparative study of Salvadoran postwar migration and solidarity. However, her new work engages the fields of medical anthropology, disability studies, childhood studies, feminist theory and practice, while committed to her long-term interest in engaged research and public anthropology.
