                  Geographical Review, Journal Article, Apr 21, 2019

                  Based on research in Colombia, this article argues that violent economic situations in specific spaces can be productively studied through a hybrid style of research that combines techniques of investigative journalism with the conceptual and methodological commitments of ethnographic inquiry.

                • Morales Re-Election Shows Failure of U.S. Policies

                  Miami Herald, Op-Ed, Oct 17, 2014

                  The re-election of Bolivian President Evo Morales to a third term is a stark reminder of Washington’s self-inflicted irrelevance south of the border. His life history is itself a story about U.S. policy blunders in Latin America.

                • 60 Years After CIA Coup, U.S. Policy Hasn't Changed

                  McClatchy-Tribune News, Op-Ed, Jun 16, 2014

                  Washington stood on the wrong side of history when it overthrew Guatemala's democratically elected president on June 27, 1954. To this day, the U.S. government has failed to learn the lessons of its Cold War interventions in Latin America.

                  After Colombia's 2-1 victory over the Ivory Coast, I spoke with Meleiza Figueroa of KPFA's "The People's Game," a show about politics and society during the 2014 World Cup. We discussed Colombia's history in the World Cup, its current winning streak, and how soccer in the country has crossed paths with the drug trade, the armed conflict, and today's political conjuncture.


                bio

                I’m an Assistant Professor of Peace & Conflict Studies and Geography at Colgate University in upstate New York. Before completing my PhD in Geography at the University of California, Berkeley, my professional background was in journalism, covering Latin American affairs and U.S. policy toward the region. Although I'm focused full-time on my academic work, I continue doing journalism on the side as a way of sharing my research with broader audiences.

                My research is about the political ecology of violence and development in Latin America with a special interest in the role of natural resources and illicit political-economic networks. My book The Frontier Effect, forthcoming from Cornell University Press, is about how outlaw combatant groups funded by the drug trade engage in unexpected forms of state-building in a violent frontier zone of northwest Colombia. I have also begun research on a new project in Colombia about the ways that nature is being used as both a weapon of war and a tool for peace. Read More ?
