GALLEGOS, Miguel. Students' movement and participation in Latin-American psychology: historical and future perspectives. Av. Psicol. Latinoam. [online]. 2009, vol.27, n.1, pp. 33-60. ISSN 1794-4724.
The historiographical paper presented is about the students' activism and participation in the Latin American psychology. This aims are: 1) to provide a brief historic overview of the Latin American psychology; 2) to review on the students' participation in the Latin American psychology; 3) to raise students' future perspectives for the Latin American psychology. It is recognized that there is an extensive past of Latin American psychology and an emerging historiographical work that reflects that past. However, there are several historiographical gaps not covered yet by the investigations in the region. In this context, this paper wants to contribute to the study of the students' activism and participation in the Latin American psychology construction. The historical perspective is supported by the renewed historiographical conception called instant history which focuses on ancient and recent history at the same time. Indirect sources were used: articles, monographs and compiled editions.
