Un cuento de dos antifascistas: sus trayectorias tortuosas desde las derechas hacia el otro lado de las barricadas, 19191- 1943 (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Un cuento de dos antifascistas: sus trayectorias tortuosas desde las derechas hacia el otro lado de las barricadas, 19191- 1943
Author: Sandra M. Deutsch
Abstract: In this paper I trace the political careers of Dr. Elvira Rawson de Dellepiane and Isabel Gimenez Bustamante. A pioneering feminist, Rawson nevertheless joined the zenophobic antileftist Liga Patriotica Argentina in 1919, whose male leaders opposed feminism. Gimenez Bustamante belonged to several Nationalist (the Argentine homegrown version of fascism) groups in the 1930s. While both women moved from the extreme right to antifascism, their antifascism manifested discomfort with the notion of an egalitarian democracy that included laborers and descendants of immigrants.

Networks in Latin American history: Theoretical and Empirical Approaches (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Networks in Latin American history: Theoretical and Empirical Approaches
Author: Sandra M. Deutsch
Abstract: The Junta de la Victoria was an Argentine women's antifascist movement. It engaged in three types of networks: (a) its transnational network with a kindred group in Uruguay, Accion Femenina por la Victoria; (b) an Argentine-wide network of chapters headed by its national board in Buenos Aires; and (c) the network(s) of women who formed the activist core within each chapter. In this presentation I analyzed aspects of these networks.
