QUIROGA, María Virginia. Political traditions and hegemony. Towards the plurinational-popular in Bolivia. Latinoamérica [online]. 2018, n.67, pp.39-63. ISSN 2448-6914.

In every political identity it is possible to recognize the fingerprints of the context in which it is inscribed, those that will be visible in the appropriation and resignification of previously sedimented speeches. From such premise rises the quest for the political traditions that that underlie in the proceso de cambio operated in Bolivia from 2006 on. This paper parts form the reaffirmation that, in such development, the national-popular tradition gained a renovated centrality, for it took hold of the Bolivian popular spectrum, but, at the same time, kept distance from the experience of the revolutionary nationalism in 1952. In accordance with this, the current reconfigurations contribute to build a plurinational-popular hegemony, not exempt of challenges and tensions. Consequently, nowadays reconfigurations would help grow a construction of a plurinational-popular hegemony not free of tensions and challenges. The analysis proposed makes evident constant movements from the experience to the theory, and vice versa; that is, the permanent articulation between the reconstruction of key political processes along Bolivian history and some theoretical perspectives of the national-popular tradition and political identities.
