Sophomore Honors Fellow publishes article on U.S.-Argentina relations during the Cold War

The article by Angela Myers '21 appeared in the journal Revista Brumario. 

Rhetoric/ History double major Angela Myers ’21 recently published an article in an undergraduate research journal focused on International Relations, Revista Brumario. Her article, “Un Análisis del Apoyo de los Estados Unidos a la Dictadura Militar Argentina Durante la Guerra Fría,” was written as part of Honors Seminar taught by Political Science Professor Laura Roselle.

The article examines the reasoning behind American aid for the Argentinian dictatorship during the Cold War. Myers analyzed declassified government records about U.S.-Argentina relations to discover what political values individuals utilized to justify support for the military junta in Argentina or to justify their individual dissent.

When asked about advice she would offer other students interested in being published, Myers explained, “If you’re passionate about research or a piece of writing and the opportunity for publication presents itself, you should always take it, even if rejection is a possible outcome!”
