AboutI am an Associate Professor at The University of Auckland, New Zealand. My research is concerned with the ways in which the arts present and contest hegemonic power. In analysing Latin American social and political developments in the post authoritarian era (1980s-present), I have studied the role of literature, but am now primarily examining popular music, film and civic activism in the context of neoliberalism and social trauma. I am completing a volume on the role of culture in consolidating processes of re-democratization in post-authoritarian Chile.
