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.
Professor Stern is award-winning author of numerous books and articles on the Andes, Mexico, and Chile from colonial times to the present. His most recent books include Battling for Hearts and Minds: Memory Struggles in Pinochet's Chile, 1973-1988 (Duke, 2006); Reckoning with Pinochet: The Memory Question in Democratic Chile (Duke, 2010); and a co-edited volume on The Human Rights Paradox: Universality and Its Discontents (Wisconsin, 2014). In 2012, he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
