Anarchy and the Nation: German Anarchism, Nationalism, and Revolution in Spain, 1933-1937

By Matthew A Hall

I study the interwar libertarian-socialist movements in Germany and Spain. This encompasses movements of industrial unionists, councilists, and syndicalists, as well as more traditional anarchisits. Currently, I’m looking at the construction of the “working class” during the Ruhraufstand (1920). I also study Spanish anarchism, transnational history, the methodological uses of anthropology in historical research, the Left’s relationship with nationalism, the practical differentiation between ideologies, and the ways theory/ideology is disseminated in class-based social movements.
