José Carlos Mariátegui and the origins of Latin American Marxism

4:15pm Sun 31 Mar

About this session

José Carlos Mariátegui was a key figure in Latin American Marxism. Although he died in 1930 at the age of just thirty-five, he reinterpreted Marxism for the continent, helped build Peru’s first working-class organizations, and challenged the development of reformism in the Communist International. This talk will appraise his life and work.
