    Toussaint or Castro? Marxism, Black Radicalism, and the Caribbean Revolutionary Imaginary, 1959-1983
    My dissertation examines the relationship between Marxism and Black radicalism in the 20th century Caribbean as at times complementary and at times competing models for liberation. Focusing on the contexts of the Cuban Revolution, the Duvalier dictatorship, and decolonization in the Anglophone Caribbean, I explore how these intellectual movements transformed events such as the 1804 Haitian Revolution and 1959 Cuban Revolution into key sites for the projections of particular emancipatory desires. Rather th…

    Soldiers Now, Citizens Later: Baloch Mercenaries and Bahraini State Formation
    National Armies, composed of citizen-soldiers, have been an integral feature of modern nation-states. Recruitment of nationals for state institutions like the army is considered essential for tying together the nation and the state. The nation furnishes state armies with its own nationals, who in their capacity as state-functionaries, often police the nation, as much as fight external wars. Recently though, various states around the world have started employing foreign laborers for positions within critic…

    Representing Oil Damages: Evidence, Health, and the Environment in the Ecuadorian Amazon
    In 1972, the U.S. based Texaco Corporation began oil production in the upper Amazon, operating for 20 years without any environmental regulations or public health guidelines. The result was the largest and most sustained oil disaster to date, for which damages are now being sought in a class-action lawsuit by the Ecuadorian people. This project examines how damages to health and the environment from oil development in the Ecuadorian Amazon are accounted for and translated into forms of evidence in order t…

    'Black Spots': Roads, Accidents, and Uncertainty in Kenya
    Traffic accidents have made roads in many parts of Africa into sites of frequent, violent death. One commentator calls the road ‘a huge slaughter slab,’ another decries ‘the death stretches our road have become.’ In Kenya, road crashes are third only to AIDS and malaria as a cause of death and mediate an intense debate among citizens on the vicissitudes of government and society in the post-structural adjustment state. Focused on potholes, traffic jams, blood, and worn-out auto parts, this debate…

    Recycled Cities: Remaking Waste in Post-Reform Urban China
    Post-reform Chinese cities have transformed from centers of production to centers of consumption, and large urban centers like Guangzhou and Beijing currently face a mounting waste crisis as official treatment facilities near capacity. This project traces the circulation of waste objects through official schemes such as Waste-to-Energy (WTE) incineration and formal recycling, grassroots recycling projects, and informal scavenging networks; it aims to uncover the entangled values, aspirations, and desires…

    Anti-Poverty Programs, Social Conflict, and Economic Thought in Colombia and the United States, 1948-1980
    My dissertation asks how ideas about capitalist development evolved through the experience of implementing Cold War anti-poverty programs, and how ideas circulated between the United States and Latin America. Focusing the Latin American research on Colombia, I examine the ideas of many groups that fought over social policy in both countries: peasants, urban working classes, government officials, capitalists, international financial institutions, academic researchers, and private consultants. The project…
