IAS Thursdays: April 10, 2014 Reframing Mass Violence panel: Remembering Argentina’s Disappeared
Remembering Argentina’s Disappeared:
Art, Media and Politics
IAS Thursdays at Four presents a Reframing Mass Violence Collaborative panel discussion.
Panel discussion organized by the IAS research collaborative Reframing Mass Violence. Participants include Emilio Crenzel (University of Buenos Aires), Leigh Payne (University of Oxford), Ana Forcinito (Spanish and Portuguese Studies, U of M), and Alejandro Baer (Director, Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies, U of M).
The panel will shed light on the most substantial transformations and the continuities in Argentina’s social memory of its recent past. We will address the processes that led Argentina’s Truth Commission Report Nunca Más (1984) to become the canonical way the disappearances and the country’s political violence is publicly remembered, and how its meaning has been modified by new interpretations in the last two decades.
Session 6 in the public, one-credit course Reframing Mass Violence: Human Rights and Social Memory in Latin America and Southern Europe.
Cosponsored by the Reframing Mass Violence Research Collaborative, the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, and the Department of Sociology. This event occurred Thursday, April 10, 2014, at 4:00 pm in Northrop, Best Buy Theater.
