GLOBAL FOCUS RECOMMENDS: “The General and the Music Teacher: Tracing Orality in the Dirty War Archives of Chile”
Thursday, March 20, 2014
University of Pittsburgh, Room 2500, Posvar Hall
The fascinating archival trail of a remarkable music teacher kidnapped and disappeared by the Chilean secret police in 1974 provokes a new approach, methodologically and substantively, to the "dirty war" history of Chile and South America. The lecture will draw out the oral foundations of written archives, the human issues at stake during the "dirty war" dictatorship, and a dramatic direct connection to General Augusto Pinochet.
By Steve J. Stern (Vice-Provost for Faculty and Staff and Alberto Flores Galindo and Hilldale Professor of History, University of Wisconsin-Madison).
Sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS), and the Department of History at the University of Pittsburgh
