Dr. Jonathan DeVore is Visiting Assistant Professor in Anthropology at University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Dr. DeVore received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, and has held postdoctoral research and teaching positions at Yale University, Miami University, the University of Cologne, and the University of Bonn. He has been conducting ethnographic and ethnohistorical research in northeastern Brazil since 2002, for nearly two decades. His research focuses on topics ranging from racialization, social hierarchies, land grabs, and social movements to multispecies ethnography, conservation politics, resilience, and climate change. Dr. DeVore’s current book project, under contract with the University of Washington Press, is entitled Emancipation Work: Reconstruction and Renewal in the Aftermath of Brazilian Slavery. The first book in a trilogy, Emancipation Work traces the multigenerational struggles by which freed slaves, their descendants, and other members of the rural poor have sought to realize the promise of freedom in Brazil’s post-emancipation period. Dr. DeVore has published articles in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals, such as Anthropological Quarterly (forthcoming), The Journal of Peasant Studies, The Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology, Dialectical Anthropology, Revue Anthropologie et Sociétés, Ethnobiology Letters, and the Journal of Political Ecology, as well as in venues for public scholarship, such as NACLA Report on the Americas.
