Currently, I am working on two projects. The first is a book manuscript Governability, Social Movements and Hegemony: Nueva Mayoria and the Renewal of Chile’s Neoliberal Order. The second aims to launch a long-term comparative research initiative titled “Flexible Accumulation and the Production of Social Cohesion in the Americas: Applying a Critical Cultural Political Economy Approach.” On the basis of three paired sites, -- Chile and Ecuador in South America, Costa Rica and Nicaragua in Central America, and California’s Silicon and Salinas Valleys in North America— I explore how more self-reflexive articulations of state, civil society, and corporate capital attempt to manage conflicts, contradictions and diverse hierarchies.
