I work on Latin American Studies and social and political theory. My aim is for Latin Americanism to inform theory and vice versa.

The following texts are drafts, usually towards publication. Please do not quote them without my permission (which I am usually happy to give; failing that, I can sometimes point you towards a version which you can quote).

More importantly, I would be pleased to hear any comments, suggestions, or criticism you might have arising from these texts. Send them to

[NB I am am aware that not all of these links work. Please contact me if you are experiencing any problems.]

I have a research blog, Posthegemony. Comments welcomed.
