Swipe Left: Activism and Arielismo’s Radical Shift in 21st Century Latin America by Shawn McDaniel, Cornell University

Monday, October 22, 2018 at 12:15pm to 1:10pm

Uris Hall, 153 109 Tower Road, Ithaca, NY 14853

Focusing on student activism and leftist politics in the twenty-first century, this talk examines contemporary reformulations of arielismo—a cultural movement spawned by Uruguayan modernist writer José Enrique Rodó’s Ariel (1900), a spiritual call to arms that fueled youth political protagonism and anti-imperialist projects throughout Latin America.
