My research focuses on the intersections between political activism, cultural change, and visual media. I have a particular interest in anti-capitalist, anti-government social movements in Mexico and the United States. I am the author of Atenco Lives!: Filmmaking and Popular Struggle in Mexico (forthcoming 2019 Vanderbilt University Press). My work has also apeared in Adjusting the Lens: Community and Collaborative Video in Mexico (2017 University of Pitssburg Press), Visual Anthropology Review, Cultural Anthropology, and the Taiwan Journal of Democracy. My current book project is a dual-field (socio-cultural/archaeological) collaborative volume dedicated to examining contemporary and historical examples of non-hierarchical political organization. I also organize a collaborative ethnographic project with students examining the challenges facing local farmers and the contemporary cultural divide between the urban and the rural.
