José Antonio (Tony) Lucero is Chair of Latin American and Caribbean Studies. A graduate of Stanford (BA, Political Science) and Princeton (MA/PhD, Politics) Lucero teaches courses on international political economy, cultural interactions, social movements, Latin American politics, and borderlands. Lucero is the author of Struggles of Voice: The Politics of Indigenous Representation in the Andes, a work that puts canonical Western theories of political order (including those of Hobbes, Burke, Gramsci, and Foucault) in dialogue with the praxis of indigenous social movements. He is currently working on research projects on the cultural politics of (1) conflicts between Awajún/Wampis Indigenous communities and the filmmaker Werner Herzog in Peru (2) human rights activism, religion, and Indigenous politics on the Mexico-US border. He is co-editor of theOxford Handbook of Indigenous Peoples Politics (Oxford University Press, forthcoming) and co-author of several works with fellow UW Professor María Elena García (CHID), the most recent of which is their son José Antonio Simón Lucero-García (future UW Class of 2033).
