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.

Satellites and Scandal: The Politics of Telehealth in Bolivia
February 24, 3pm 
101 International Studies Building

Evo Morales made healthcare reform one of the central features of his administration. One of the most highly publicized projects was a nationwide telehealth network, administered via Bolivia’s first communications satellite. How and why did telehealth become a political issue in Bolivia? And how can we understand the skepticism about telehealth by many urban Bolivians?
