Citizens of Memory: The Art of Human Rights

How do nations recover from the trauma of dictatorship? What can the arts and humanities contribute to democratization? Can transitional justice initiatives enhance a shared commitment to human rights in the after-generations? Prof. Tandeciarz explores these questions in the post-dictatorship context of her native Argentina.

Alumni, parents, family and friends are welcome to join. Time will be available for Q&A.
