Urban rock music is a genre that has long been associated with rebellion, anarchist politics, and marginalized urban youth. While London, Los Angeles, and New York are all cities that may come to mind as centers of punk countercultures, this genre also traveled south to cities like Medellin, Lima, and Santiago. Shane Greene (Indiana University), Hyejin Nah (NYU), Joshua Tucker (Brown), and Karl Swinehart will discuss the various musical styles to arise from punk's diffusion in Latin America.

This documentary by Tony Buba is based on Marcus Rediker’s book The Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery and Freedom. It chronicles a trip to Sierra Leone in 2013 to visit the home villages of the people who seized the slave schooner Amistad in 1839, to interview elders about local memory of the case, and to search for the long-lost ruins of Lomboko, the slave trading factory where their cruel transatlantic voyage began. The film uses the knowledge of villagers, fishermen, and truck drivers to recover a lost history from below in the struggle against slavery.
