Historias 87 – The Destape, Sex and Democracy in 1980s Argentina with Natalia Milanesio
Dr. Natalia Milanesio joined Steven to discuss her new book ¡Destape!: Sex, Democracy, and Freedom in Postdictatorial Argentina. For Milanesio, the Destape was “the biggest and most explosive sociocultural phenomenon after the fall of the military dictatorship… that made sexual culture into a powerful metaphor for democracy and the reconstruction of Argentine society.”
¡Destape! earned Honorable Mention in the 2020 Alfred B. Thomas Award competition from the Southeastern Council of Latin American Studies.
