Max Minogue (Class of 2021) returned from his semester study abroad program in La Plata, Argentina in late March due to COVID-19. Fortunately he has been able to continue with his coursework there remotely and is now beginning his summer Monroe research project related to the last Argentine dictatorship. He will spend the summer working with the Director of the Southern Cone project at the National Security Archive reviewing declassified documents released in April 2019. Hailed as a success in “declassification diplomacy,” the release of 47,000 pages of intelligence records from the dictatorship period constitued, in the words of President Macri, the “largest amount of information that the United States has ever transferred to another country.” Max hopes his research will contribute to ongoing human rights trials and the eventual publication of one or more briefing books.
