MANZANO, Valeria. Las batallas de los "laicos": movilización estudiantil en Buenos Aires, septiembre - octubre de 1958. Bol. Inst. Hist. Argent. Am. Dr. Emilio Ravignani [online]. 2009, n.31, pp. 123-150. ISSN 1850-2563.
Through the analysis of three interrelated processes, this article reconstructs the cycle of mobilizations led by university and high-school students during the so-called "lay or free" conflict. First, the article explores the emergence of a new student generation, whose most visible elements were the high-school students. Second, it examines how the press as well as ministers and the police forces explained the characteristics of that student movement by resorting to anticommunist and anti-Peronist discourses. Lastly, it analyzes how some sectors of the student leadership strove to approach the Peronist labor movement and its lasting consequences to the preservation of the Reformist-oriented student movement.
