MARKARIAN, Vania. On the Old and New Left. Young Uruguayan Communists and the 1968 Student Movement. Secuencia [online]. 2011, n.81, pp.159-186. ISSN 0186-0348.
This article focuses on the participation of young Uruguayan communists in the 1968 student movement as part of the generation of Latin Americans who combined a heroic view of militancy with the adoption of new cultural guidelines for Europe and the United States. It analyzes both the discussion that arose in the left on the "pathways of the revolution" and the effect of these global ideas and practices in shaping local political identities. The link between leftist militancy, political violence and youth culture attempts to rethink some of the categories used in studying the 1960s in Latin America, particularly those of the "new left" and "revolutionary left."
