Reframing Mass Violence: Human Rights and Social Memory in Latin America and Southern Europe.

Cultural practices have played a crucial role in the construction of collective memory in Argentina, by addressing the invisibility and the silence about human rights violations, by exploring different layers of memory, and by reframing the interpretations that surround human rights struggles. This talk will offer an overview of the battles of memory after the last military dictatorship in Argentina (1976-1983), focusing on artistic and cultural practices in dialogue with crucial moments of the post dictatorship period.

Organized by the IAS Reframing Mass Violence Research Collaborative. Cosponsored by the Human Rights Program, and the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies.
