SLAS Annual Conference Keynote: Towards a political sociology of urban marginality

Start: Apr 4, 2014 6:00:00 PM

SLAS
Prof Javier Auyero: This talk reviews the main themes that underlined two decades of (mostly, ethnographic) research and outlines the contours of a political sociology of urban marginality. Political clientelism, its relationship with collective action, the role of clandestine connections in politics, environmental suffering, poor people’s waiting as way of experiencing political domination, and the concatenated form that violence acquires at the urban margins: the talk will cover these (admittedly, very broad) topics and, based on the lessons learned in the field, will propose ways of improving our social scientific understanding and explanation of urban marginality in Latin America.

Javier Auyero is Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Professor in Latin American Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the author of Poor People’s Politics (Duke University Press), Contentious Lives (Duke University Press), Routine Politics and Violence in Argentina (Cambridge University Press), and Patients of the State (Duke University Press). Together with Débora Swistun, he is the author of Flammable (Oxford University Press), and more recently, with María Fernanda Berti, of La Violencia en los Márgenes (Katz Ediciones). Javier has been the editor of the journal Qualitative Sociology and he is currently the editor of the book series Global and Comparative Ethnographies at Oxford University Press.
