More than 45 years after his death in Bolivia, Che Guevara continues to both inspire efforts towards social justice around the world and spark fierce discussions about his life and legacy. This lecture will revisit his place in history and will provide a nuanced assessment of his political and cultural significance today.

This talk is offered in conjunction with the ongoing exhibit “Korda and the Revolutionary Image” that will be on display through January 26, 2014.

Carlos Aguirre is a Professor in the UO Department of History and Director of the Latin American Studies Program.
