The Post-Dictatorship Generation in Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay explores how young adults in Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay make sense of the 1970s socialist projects and the ensuing years of repression in their activism, film, and literature. How do they deal with the stories of their parents, be their parents persecuted activists, shocked bystanders, or perpetrators? How do they combine a critical appraisal of the dramatically interrupted projects of social change with their strong condemnation of state terror in a context marked by polarization, impunity, and the need for a collective project? They engage in a rich intergenerational dialogue in order to 'own' the past and become actors of the present.The first part of the book focuses on Argentina, where this generationa#39;s public interventions have broadened social involvement in remembering the past and encouraged learning from it for the sake of the present.
