Between March and September of 1973, the left and right face off in the streets, in the factories, in the courts, in the universities, in parliament, and in the news media. The situation becomes unsustainable. The United States finances the truckers' strike and foments social chaos. The contradictions within the left-wing increase the crisis. A wide sector of the middle class supports the boycott and civil war. On September 11, Pinochet bombs the governmental palace.

In the immediate days following the coup, the national soccer stadium in Santiago was converted into the country’s largest detention center, as thousands of Chilean men and women were arrested and taken there, many of whom were tortured and killed.  The stadium became synonymous with the regime’s abuses and served as a physical metaphor for what was taking place in the country: a place of national celebration and unity now representing brutality and imprisonment.

Mission

The Hemispheric Institute on the Americas is an interdisciplinary group bringing together faculty and graduate students that focus on the study of transnational processes in the American Hemisphere.

Our Goal includes promoting research to challenge the boundaries of disciplinary specialization and culture area studies, exploring the connections throughout the social, cultural, and economic landscape of the Western Hemisphere from an array of perspective and redirecting and redefining the study of Latin America from a broadly hemispheric viewpoint.
