Class, gender and ethnicity in Andean anarchism, first half of 20th century

 

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. At the same time, more than simply defining Peruvian and Bolivian anarchisms, these concepts also constituted oppressive modalities that converged among the diverse actors at the helm of various Andean power structures. Taking into consideration these matters, we will analyze both the collective expressions of the Peruvian and Bolivian libertarian movements during this time, as well as the conceptual vocabularies posed by some of their most prominent intellectuals. The conclusions to which we arrive allow us to begin formulating a response to the question of whether or not we can speak of the existence of a uniquely “Andean anarchism.”
