Brief Summary of ProposalThis course will examine the military dictatorships of the seventies and eighties in Argentina and Uruguay. During the semester, we will look at the different ways in which these repressive governments affected cultural production and expression. During the semester we will have access to a variety of cultural artifacts (political speeches, essays, movies, documentaries, interviews, short stories, theater, novels and rock music) from this particular time period that will allow us to explore the "cultural politics" and the "politics of culture" of the River Plate. Class time will consist of lectures, discussions and student presentations. Outside work will involve readings from a course pack that will supplement the works of authors Mario Benedetti, Alicia Partnoy, Marta Traba and Luisa Valenzuela. In addition, students will be expected to write position papers for every reading assignment.
