‘Spanishrevolution’, paper about the 15M on Anthropology Today
Our paper on the Spanish revolution, aka 15M, has been published in the August issue of Anthropology Today (vol. 27 issue 4). We have to thank Julio Albarrán, member of the collective Zemos98, for collaborating with the great photos (like the one in this post) that illustrate the text (anyone interested in the paper without access to the journal, please ask me for a copy). Here is the abstract: “The article reports on the street protests that took over Spanish cities earlier in May and June. The protests have been explained as a response on the part of new media democratic networks to the governance of the economic crises by corrupt political and financial classes. We offer here a tentative chronology of the events, and essay instead an argument about a revitalised municipalist tradition, that sees in the plaza the centrepiece of new forms of do-it-yourself political action”.
