Of Light and Struggle: Social Justice, Human Rights, and Accountability in Uruguay

Haines Hall, Rm 279

During the country’s dictatorship from 1973 to 1985, Uruguayans suffered under crushing repression, which included the highest rate of political incarceration in the world. Debbie Sharnak will give a talk on her book, Of Light and Struggle, which explores how activists, transnational social movements, and international policymakers collaborated and clashed in response to this era and during the country’s transition back to democratic rule.
