The pedagogy of revolution: Popular intellectuals and the origins of the Salvadoran insurgency, 1960--1980 by Joaquín Mauricio Chávez( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study also emphasizes the role played by peasant leaders in the formation of the insurgency, particularly in Chalatenango, a northern department in El Salvador. It suggests that peasant leaders had a major intellectual influence on the movement. The alliances made between urban intellectuals and peasant leaders were largely formed through popular, institutional, and religious pedagogy, that is, rural cooperative training, literacy programs, and Catholic social doctrine workshops. Throughout the decade, this pedagogy was radicalized by the structural limitations of Salvadoran politics, political economy, and society. In turn, this emerging "pedagogy of revolution" strained and challenged those structures and politics. The state's coercive response to the growing social mobilizations was matched by a state propaganda profusely distributed in the media that depicted popular intellectuals as "the internal enemy." This propaganda enabled the victimization of popular intellectuals, that is, it legitimized paramilitary violence against teachers and peasant leaders, and motivated many of them to join the insurgency, thus becoming a direct cause of the civil war
