The traveling Yuyanapaq Photography Exhibit, produced by the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission, chronicles the political violence that ravaged Peru between 1980 and 2000, where an estimated 70,000 people were killed or disappeared during the two decades of turmoil, and many more were raped, injured, or forced to abandon their homes.  This exhibit is hosted by the Center for Global Studies and the Latin American Studies program at GMU and will be on display in the Mason Hall Atrium from October 31 to December 4, 2011.
