Description

I plan to investigate identity formation in South America resulting from the Triple Alliance War from 1864-1870. The three main aspects of focus for research are: military identity (the transformation of the Brazilian Army), state identity (Paraguays postwar decline), and current identity (how South Americans remember and study the Triple Alliance War). The Triple Alliance War is the largest conflict fought in South America as Paraguay suffered the downfall of its government, loss of territories, and huge population losses. However, my research is not concerned with practices of the war but rather the broader outcomes.
