Some new projects I’m involved are:

  • The Sinister Gaze of the World: The Films of Arturo Ripstein. Edited with Manuel
    Gutiérrez and Isis Sadek. To be completed Fall 2019.
  • Dangerous people: popular mobilization and representation in Venezuela.
    Manuscript to be completed Spring 2019.
  • Documents of the Haitian Revolution.
  • Venezuelan Cinema in Historical Perspective.

Over the past ten years, I’ve been conducting research on several Venezuelan social groups whose politics originate from a position of extreme marginality. These groups include bikers, inmates, street performers, and squatters. Their practices, often deemed pre-political or even lumpen-proletarian, are in fact the complex expression of new political subjects that have acquired visibility in the context of the Bolivarian Revolution.
