This course explores the history of state-sponsored violence in the Americas paying particular attention to violence, memory, repression and human rights, as well as tireless efforts to contest authoritarian regimes. We begin the class with a range of broad writings that map the contours of growing field of the history and anthropology of violence, and the hemispheric history of the Cold War in the Americas. In the weeks that follow, we pay close attention to Chile, Argentina, and Brazil as case studies that illuminate these larger histories. We set each national case study in historical context, discuss key readings, and watch and analyze a film that develops the themes embedded in each place and time. This hybrid is a class, in which we will ?meet? online once a week to watch films, share ideas online, and discuss key questions. We will also meet in person to discuss and debate film and readings, once a week.
