New MAWG Co-Chair

We are delighted to announce Alexander Ulrich Thygesen as a co-chair of the Memory and Activism Working Group!

Alexander Ulrich Thygesen is a PhD candidate at the Department of German and Romance Languages at Aarhus University, Denmark, where he is working on a research project concerning the interconnections of memory and activism during the estallido social mass mobilisation in Chile in 2019/2020 and the subsequent constitutional process that it provoked.  He holds an MA in Spanish and Latin American Studies and History from Aarhus University. In 2021/2022 he was a visiting scholar at the research centre Núcleo Milenio Arte, Performatividad y Activismo (NMAPA) located at the Pontificia Universidad Católica in Santiago, Chile.
