Event Description

GABRIELLE GIRARD is a doctoral candidate in history and a certificate student in the Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS). She is interested in the recent history of Argentina and the global history of human rights, particularly during the 1980s and 1990s.

Her dissertation studies how newly democratic Argentina pioneered the idea of the truth commission and major domestic human rights prosecution. It traces how these Argentine innovations captivated human rights advocates around the world, transforming global human rights activism.

At Princeton, Gabrielle has been a PLAS Lassen Fellow and UCHV Graduate Prize Fellow. She graduated with a B.A. in history and Spanish from Cornell University.

This workshop will be offered in a hybrid format-- on Zoom and in-person in 210 Dickinson Hall. Registration is required for either form of attendance.
