Mexico 1968: Emancipatory Memories 50 Years On: Susana Draper, Princeton University

When: Wed., Oct. 16, 6 p.m. 2019

Susana Draper is Associate Professor of Comparative Literature at Princeton University and the author of 1968 Mexico: Constellations of Freedom and Democracy (Duke UP 2018), among other publications. Draper’s talk will offer a nuanced perspective of the 1968 movement in Mexico, challenging the dominant cultural narrative that has emphasized the October 2nd Tlatelolco Massacre and male student leaders. Draper reveals new archives of revolutionary participation—from women’s cooperative experiments, to Mexican Marxist philosophers, political prisoners, and women who participated in the movement.
