CLLAS Grantee Presentation: James Daria, Anthropology PhD Student

James Daria’s research examines the intersection of agrarian conflict, migration, and social movements through an interdisciplinary focus combining anthropology and history. Since a history of violence and bloodshed has plagued the Oaxacan town of San Juan Copala from colonial times to the present, it is important to ask how endemic violence in rural, indigenous communities in Mexico is to be understood. An unearthing of the archival material on the agrarian history of San Jan Copala demonstrates that the history of this town is not simply written in blood, but is also written in ink as the community has fought within the political and legal system to rectify its problems.
