On September 21-23rd, Anthropology and Social Change welcomes Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui to give a series of three consecutive talks. Sylvia is a contemporary Aymara feminist sociologist, historian, and subaltern theorist from Bolivia.  She draws upon anarchist theory as well as Quecha and Aymara cosmologies.  She is the previous director and longtime member of the Taller de Historia Oral Andina (Workshop on Andean Oral History). She is also an activist who works directly with indigenous movements in Bolivia, such as the Katarista movement and the coca growers movement. Sylvia's best known work is Oppressed But Not Defeated: Peasant Struggles Among the Aymara and Quechua in Bolivia, 1900-1980 (Geneva: UNRISD, 1984).

This series, as with all ANTH events, are free and open to the public.
