Kirsten Weld discusses the discovery of Guatemala's secret police archive, and the creation of an archive of genocide.
Weld has two book manuscripts under contract, the first with Duke University Press and the second with Hill & Wang. Her research interests encompass the social and political history of the Americas, focusing on: the Cold War in Latin America, particularly the dirty wars of the 1960s-1990s and their legacies; revolutionary movements and counterrevolutionary responses; different forms of post-conflict reckoning, including truth commissions, human rights tribunals, recovery of archives kept by past repressive regimes, and historical memory initiatives; Latin American migration and diaspora; ethnographic approaches to documents and archives in historical research.
