Convener: Professor Eduardo Posada-Carbó
Speaker: Anna Cant, LSE
Anna Cant is an assistant professor of Latin American History at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Cant’s research centres on rural development and political communication in the Andean region during the twentieth century. She gained her PhD in History at the University of Cambridge (2015) with a thesis on land reform in Peru. Her postdoctoral project at Los Andes University in Bogota (Colombia) examined radio education and ideas of rural modernity in Colombia during the 1960s and 70s. She is currently developing this research into a broader project on Catholic radio in the Andes. Her talk will focus on her first book, Land Without Masters: Agrarian Reform and Political Change under Peru’s Military Government (University of Texas Press, 2021).
