Abstract
  • In this thesis, I outline a genealogy of the Spanish anarchist movement. I outline the epistemological terms on which anarchism has been defined by both historical and contemporary anarchist groups, and then I destabilize these epistemological understandings of anarchism by outlining the historical genealogy of the anarchist movement as it developed alongside the 19th-century Spanish state. I then use a case study of the agrarian anarchist collectivization movement during the Spanish Civil War to illustrate this genealogy. Finally, I theorize the contemporary, post-leftist Spanish anarchist movement, using Foucault's theory of the role of freedom in modern governmentality.
