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.
