Off the Shelf: Author Talk with Tanya Hamer & Katherine Marino
September 17, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Tanya Harmer is author of “Beatriz Allende: A Revolutionary Life in Cold War Latin America”. In this biography of Beatriz Allende (1942–1977)—revolutionary doctor and daughter of Chile’s socialist president, Salvador Allende—portrays what it means to live, love, and fight for change. Centering Beatriz’s life within the global contours of the Cold War era, Harmer exposes the promises and paradoxes of the revolutionary wave that swept through Latin America in the long 1960s. Allende’s story demolishes the myth that women were simply extras in the story of Latin America’s Left and brings home the immense cost of a revolutionary moment’s demise.
Katherine Marino’s “Feminism for the Americas: The Making of an International Human Rights Movement” chronicles the dawn of the global movement for women’s rights in the first decades of the twentieth century.This Pan-American network drove a transnational movement that advocated women’s suffrage, equal pay for equal work, maternity rights, and broader self-determination.
Dr. Tanya Harmer is associate professor of international history at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Dr. Katherine M. Marino is associate professor of history at the University of California, Los Angeles.
