The Age of Youth in Argentina

This chapter explores the involvement of young people in student, party, and guerrilla groups. It begins by reconstructing the juncture of 1968–69 to show that it was during the concatenated popular revolts in Corrientes, Rosario, and Córdoba in May 1969 that young people, chiefly university and secondary school students, became visible political actors. In that process, they differentiated their politicization from what was unfolding among youth in Western Europe and North America. They also wanted to erase the markers of their youthfulness in order to construct bridges with “the People.” In doing so, politicizing young people participated in the ideological and cultural transformations of the left, notably from the highly emotional assimilation of Argentina to the Third World.

Keywords:   Argentina, young people, political participation, youth culture, politicization, Third World
