I conducted research for my project, "Gender, Modernity, and Technology: Chile during Four Different Political Regimes, 1964-2000," at the Rockefeller Archive Center (RAC) for three weeks in June 2003. This project examines how four very different Chilean governments, ranging from the socialist government of Salvador Allende to the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, understood and employed ideas about modernity, gender, and technology. My research at the RAC focused on the 1960s, the period during which Christian Democrat Eduardo Frei was president. I examined records in four different RAC collections: the Population Council records, the Rockefeller Foundation Archives, the records of IBEC, and the papers of John D. Rockefeller 3rd.
