Disruptive Archives: Feminist Memories of Resistance in Latin America's Dirty Wars
Dr. Viviana MacManus, the author of Disruptive Archives: Feminist Memories of Resistance in Latin America’s Dirty Wars (University of Illinois Press, 2020), will discuss the history of gender and state violence during the so-called “Dirty Wars” of Argentina and Mexico (1960-1980s) and the current struggles over the historical memory of this era. In dialogue with RCA Director Sylvanna Falcón of LALS, Dr. MacManus, Assistant Professor of Spanish and French Studies at Occidental College, will explore narratives of loss, haunting, and trauma to bring forth a Latin American feminist theory of justice. This event is free and open to the public and webinar registration is now available. Closed captioning and an ASL interpreter will be provided.
