Biography

In regional terms I am interested in the DRCongo, and I have done fieldwork in Kinshasa. I am currently working on a project about electoral politics in Kinshasa, and am trying to finish a book about Congolese music and cultural patronage between Kinshasa and Europe. In theoretical terms I am interested in Marxism and approaches to anthropology that bring together aesthetic and political economic ideas.
