5099 - Transnacionalismo, Comunismo y Redes Antiimperialistas en el Gran Caribe 1920-1935

Transnationalism and networks have become fashionable but also useful concepts in recent historical research. This paper examines the construction of transnational networks of revolutionaries, activists and exiles in the Greater Circum-Caribbean (Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean Islands and Eastern United States) in the period 1920-1935. The paper examines the role played by several major hubs in these networks (Mexico City, Havana, New York for example) and the development and maturing (in the 1920s) of transnational antimperialist ideas, critiques and sensibilities. The ponencia concentrates on two sets of campaigns: the first involves the organization of antiimperialist and antidictatorial struggles by exiles from dictatorial regimes in Peru, Venezuela and Cuba , and the second deals with the first modern antiimperialist network of the twentieth century- the movement built in support of Augusto C. Sandino in Nicaragua. One of the vectors here, but it is only one of several - albeit the most important and best resourced, was the international Communist movement (the Communist International, or Comintern).
