Dr. Paolo Bocci is a cultural anthropologist specializing in citizenship, agriculture and conservation in Ecuador. His current research on the Galapagos Islands examines contested landscapes, emergent ecologies and human and non-human enactments of alternative social and environmental politics. He is currently developing his dissertation into a book manuscript, Invasive Life: Illegal Farmers and Alien Species on the Galapagos, a contribution to socioecological justice, politics of nature and social studies of science. He holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of North Carolina and is currently a Fellow in the Thompson Writing Program at Duke University.
