This book investigates the manner in which Chilean media and public culture discuss human rights violations committed during the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet (1973-1990) as well as human rights problems which still exist. Through an intricate interplay of censorship, remembrance, and protest, the media and surrounding culture have played a key role in structuring how Chileans interpret their present and past. It is with the media’s role in alternately silencing and re-presenting trauma during times of social upheaval and flux, as well as with how audiences respond to these re-presentations, that this book is concerned.
