Speaker information

Cynthia Milton, Canada Research Chair, Universite de Montreal

In the field of memory studies in Latin America, 'memory' implicitly connotes human rights, specifically the defense of human rights that have been transgressed, and the rights of victims to recount, seek social repair and justice. Memory thus holds positive connotations, despite the negative memories themselves. Yet, what about memories that do not necessarily promote a human rights narrative or may distort the meaning of 'Never Again'? In an attempt to consider such memories – not necessarily false or fabricated, but contorted – this presentation turns to the memories of armed state agents of the Peruvian conflict from 1980-2000.
