1968 in Latin America

Friday, April 5, 2013 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Columbia University Morningside Campus International Affairs Building, Room 1512
Increasingly, Global Sixties is used to describe historical research that bridges the fields of Cold War studies and 1960s social and cultural protest. With a focus on Latin America, this roundtable discussion will explore the 1960s as a transnational, global set of experiences whose revolutionary heroes and imageryfrom Che Guevara to The Beatleswere deeply intertwined. Come participate in a conversation with Susana Draper (Princeton University), Vania Markarian (Tinker Fellow, Columbia University), and Eric Zolov (Stony Brook University) as they discuss their current research and the significance of this emergent field of inquiry.
