The Making of Indigenous Culture: Neoliberal Multicultualism and Ethnogovernmentality in Post-Dictatorship Chile – A presentation by Guillaume Boccara, January 27, 2009

As he examines the interrelationships of indigenous peoples in Chile, the Chilean government, NGOs, and other multinational organizations, Professor Boccara offers a critical look at governmentality as another form of state violence. In the process, he addresses environmental and other pressing concerns. This talk is part of Professor Boccara’s larger project, “The Making of Indigenous Culture: Neoliberal Multiculturalism and Ethnogovernmentality in Post- Dictatorship Chile,” the culmination of a seven-year study in Chile and Argentina.

This talk is also available as an audio download (.mp3 – 87.3 MB).

Dr. Boccara received his Ph.D. in anthropology from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris, where he is a researcher at the Centre national de la recherche scientifique. He is also a professor at the Instituto de Investigaciones Arqueológica y Museo at the Northern Catholic University in Chile.

Professor Boccara is in residence at the Institute for Advanced Study this spring as part of the Global Cultures Group of Quadrant, a joint initiative of the IAS and the University of Minnesota Press. Quadrant is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
