Abstract This article's objective is to contribute to the development of critical perspectives on the methodologies & strategies employed by social movements in Latin America. The discussion begins by analyzing the different ways in which social movements have been approached as subjects for research in the academies of several nations. Specific topics surveyed include the comparison & contrast of old & new paradigms in political action, the proliferation of research on Latin American social movements in the contemporary era, & the many different ways in which psychology, historiography, political science, anthropology, & sociology provide analytical categories & theoretical perspectives for continued research into Latin American social movements. All of these different sources, views, & methodologies need to be taken into account if one is to grasp the subject in all of its breadth & complexity.
