Chile 50 years later: Diaspora, Memory and Future

September 6 @ 17:00 18:30

Collective memory on human rights violations, and forcibly disappeared, as well as political exile, has taken the spotlight of the 50th anniversary of Augusto Pinochet’s military coup – backed by the CIA – that overthrew the democratic socialist government of President Salvador Allende on Sept 11, 1973. This roundtable aims to debate the construction of collective memory in Chile 50 years later. It debates memory as an intergenerational experience and diasporic collective process from the lens of diasporas that either grew up during Pinochet’s dictatorship or might not have necessarily experienced dictatorship. It reflects on how Chilean diasporas construct and reframe a sense of collective memory within a post-authoritarian society.
