This year's American Anthropological Association conference will take place in Denver from November 18th to 22nd. I'll be presenting a paper on political subjectivity and ephemeral activism for the panel entitled 'Negotiating collective action: Dynamics of social movements as shifting spaces of political action'. Other presenters include Melinda Gurr (Syracuse University), Mamyrah Prosper (North Carolina State University) and Natasa Garic-Humphrey (University of California San Diego).

The panel will be chaired by John Burdick and Nancy Postero will act as discussant.

Alex Ungprateeb Flynn is an Assistant Professor at the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance, University of California, Los Angeles. Working as an anthropologist and curator, Alex’s practice explores the intersection of ethnographic and curatorial modes of enquiry. Researching collaboratively with activists, curators and artists in Brazil since 2007, Alex explores the prefigurative potential of art in community contexts, prompting the theorisation of fields such as the production of knowledge, the pluriversal, and the social and aesthetic dimensions of form.
