499Independent Research For The Master's Thesis
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 (2019). My work has also apeared in Adjusting the Lens: Community and Collaborative Video in Mexico (2017), Cine político en México (2019), The Journal of Latin American & Caribbean Anthropology, Visual Anthropology Review, Cultural Anthropology, and The Taiwan Journal of Democracy. My current research projects include a historical examination of the ethico-political idea of autogestión in Mexico and a collaborative ethnographic project examining the challenges facing US heartland farmers and the contemporary cultural divide between the urban and the rural.
