My dissertation "Contesting Hegemony Beyond the Ivory Tower: Students Insurgents during Mexico’s 'Dirty War,' 1962-1982," traces the origins of five urban guerrilla movements during the Mexican "dirty war." This dissertation looks at the culture of rebellion and revolution in the 1970s in Mexico, and how a new generation of individuals conceived a culture of rebellion. It explores the participation of Mexican students in armed struggles during this period, the debates regarding student’s contributions to national political culture, the ways they reframed the demands of previous struggles in relation to national and international developments, and how youth responded in diverse ways to 1968 and the new challenges of the 1970s. Advisers: Patrick McNamara and Jeffrey Pilcher
