CASCA/SANA2016 panel CFP: The Latin American State

We are looking for one or two more participants for the following panel.

The Latin American State and its Agents
The papers in this panel approach the Latin American state with an
ethnographic eye, exploring the everyday practices of state agents and
a range of ways that the targets of state programs interpret them,
respond to them, and sometimes alter those projects to fit their
needs. The cases to be presented include: how public health emerged as
an arena of legitimate state activity in Ecuador, and helped make the
state seem real and effective; the ambivalent role of educators in the
context of Argentina's conditional cash transfer program.

Please contact Lindsay DuBois ( or Kim Clark
( as soon as possible but before Feb. 4th at the latest.
