Cultural production, ideology and struggle in Peru, 1956-1989. 



My research focuses on the role of cultural productions in a period of great unionisation and politicisation of the labour and popular movement in Peru during the 1950s-1980s. The project aims to rethink these decades through the poetic and visual productions and the cultural activity within the unions of a group of working-class intellectuals, poets and artists who participated in the circulation and discussion of radical political ideas in the country. In this way, I will examine how their cultural productions were marked by the economic, political, ideological and technological processes of those years, a time that opened with the impact of the Cold War, the Cuban Revolution (1959) and the expansion of the guerrillas and social movements in Latin America and closed with the fall of the Soviet bloc and the emergence of neoliberalism in the late 1980s.
