A chronological overview of deaths in Bolivian political conflict by domain of protest.

Deadliest conflicts have been on coca, gas privatization, partisan politics (including 2006-9, 2019 crises), rural land (including Laymi/Qaqachaka conflict).

Work :

I teach the anthropology of the power and political systems, social movements, race and racism, Indigenous rights, and the Andes, and Latin America at Vanderbilt University.

My ethnography focuses on grassroots social movements in Bolivia and socioenvironmental conflicts in Latin America. It resulted in this book: sovereignstreet.org

I compile and create code to analyze a database of deaths in Bolivian political conflict since 1982.
