SPAN 487 - Postdictatorial Transatlantic Theater
A close study of theater, performance, and cultural politics through memory and trauma from 1990 to 2010 in the Southern Cone and Spain. The dictatorships in Argentina (1976-83), Chile (1973-90), and Uruguay (1973-85) led to political persecution, censorship, and exile. Numerous dramatists and theater groups found refuge in Spain, where literary and cultural production continued as an act of protest against the military regimes. This political engagement remained once the democracy was restored and played a significant role in the advancement of social justice in the following decades of the post-dictatorship context.
