Class, gender and ethnicity in Andean anarchism, first half of 20th century
February 17, 3pm
101 International Studies Building

In this talk, we consider the forms of anarchist organization and struggle that developed in Peru and Bolivia during the first half of the 20th century. We argue that class, ethnicity, and gender are instructive concepts for addressing this phenomenon since, in their complex intersections, these three categories gave life to the anarchist movements in both countries.
