About

Forty years after General Pinochet’s military dictatorship (1973-1990) violently overthrew President Salvador Allende’s democratically-elected revolutionary government, Chile stands as an international symbol of the horrors of state terrorism, the power of grassroots mobilization, and the struggle to forge democracy after dictatorship. This program introduces students to the battles being waged over history, the courage of human rights activists, the quest for truth and justice, and the emergence of powerful social movements aiming to curb discrimination and inequality. Students will live with host families; interact with some of the country’s most important politicians, activists, and academics; and work towards a complex vision of Chile today. Classes will be taught at the University of Chile. Field trips include a visit to Valparaíso, tours of the houses of Nobel poet Pablo Neruda, and hiking among Chile’s natural beauty. No knowledge of Spanish is required.
