In this article our purpose is to establish a dialogue between Mariátegui and cultural studies , taking accountvariants of the field in Europa, US and Latin America. In the first place, we analize some topics of Mariategui s work, like race, tradition and literature in Perú, that may to be consideredlike nodal themes in ´cultural studies´ tradition. Secondly, we explore his approach to cultural issues starting from an overall view of his career (trade-union, political and intellectual)and in connection with his interpretation about marxism. Our hypothesis is that the analysis of Mariategui s trayectory will give us new conceptual and methodological tools to think a number of issues that are currently installed on the agenda of ´Latin American cultural studies´, but also it will allow us to introduce new arguments in the debate on institutionalization and de-politicization of the field.
