Claudio Lomnitz The Return of Comrade Ricardo Flores Magón

The Mexican anarchist and exile Ricardo Flores Magón was at the center of the first grassroots political movement to span the U.S.-Mexico border. In his new biography, Claudio Lomnitz delves into the lives and ideology of Magón’s inner circle, examining their role in the Mexican Revolution.

Claudio Lomnitz is the Campbell Family Professor of Anthropology in the Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures at Columbia University.

The discussion will be moderated by Margaret Chowning and Brian DeLay, both professors of History at UC Berkeley.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies, the Humanities Center, the Department of History, the Global History Seminar, and the Bancroft Library.
