Anibal Quijano (1928-2018)
03 June 2018
It is with sadness that we note the death of Anibal Quijano, one of Latin America’s most distinguished sociologists. Quijano became a point of reference in the debates that raged in the late 1960s and early 1970s with reference to the persistence of colonial power in modern Peru. As well as being a important intellectual and political figure on the left, he was also a strong advocate of indigenous culture and music.
He studied at San Marcos University where he qualified for his PhD degree in 1964. As well as teaching for many years at San Marcos, he held several teaching posts abroad, notably in the United States and France.
