Keynote Address: Dr. Claudio Lomnitz, Columbia University (Campbell Family Progressor of Anthropology), "Ideological Incoherence and Ideological Purity in the Mexican Revolution."

This conference traces various efforts to imagine a better, more inclusive political future, especially efforts rooted in the anarchist legacy of the Mexican Revolution. In 1903, the Flores-Magón brothers declared, “La Constitucion ha muerto” on a banner which they hung outside the offices of the anti-Porfirista newspaper El Hijo del Ahuizote in Mexico City. The routes of exile they traveled following this watershed proclamation created opportunities for insurgent Mexicans and their sympathizers – first, on the Texas-Mexico border and then across the globe – to form radical communities through a variety of media. Of particular interest is how these “sueños de libertad” galvanized communities at the turn of the century in cities ranging from San Antonio, Laredo, Chicago, Los Angeles, and St. Louis to Alcoy, Barcelona, and Moscow. With a mixed media exhibition at Mexic-Arte, a Fine Arts Museum housing works by Mexican and Mexican American artists in downtown Austin, and an academic conference at UT Austin co-sponsored by the Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) and the Hijo de Ahuizote Museum-Archive in Mexico City, we wish to revisit these early 20th century articulations of transnational collaboration as we discuss their anarchist spirit and global legacies.
