Abstract: James Holston is professor of anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley. His research and teaching focuses on cities and citizenship; political theory, democracy, and law; planning and architecture; urban ethnography; Brazil, and the Americas. Holston is the author of Insurgent Citizenship: Disjunctions of Democracy and Modernity in Brazil, (Princeton University Press, 2008), The Modernist City: An Anthropological Critique of Brasília (University of Chicago Press, 1989), and editor of Cities and Citizenship (Duke University Press, 1999). His current research examines the worldwide insurgence of democratic urban citizenships, their entanglement with entrenched systems of inequality, and their contradiction in violence and misrule of law under political democracy. He is also studying the new institutions and practices of participatory urban planning in Brazil and preparing a book that documents, through photographs and interviews, the autoconstruction of houses and neighborhoods in the urban peripheries of São Paulo.
