Current research

My research interrogates what the ethnographic study of music tells us about social inequalities. Specifically, what rap music tells us about how disenfranchised Mexican youth experience, promote and critique the intense violence and criminality they are subject to; and what Mexican danzón tells us about race, age, gender, status and ambivalence. I am also interested in the potentialities of experimental ethnographic writing.
