Loperena’s research examines indigenous and black struggles for territorial autonomy in Central America, ethicality and subject formation, and the socio-spatial politics of economic development. In addition to his current book project, A Fragmented Paradise: Anti-Blackness and the Limits of Progress in Post-Coup Honduras, he is co-editing a themed issue on the role of cultural evidence in the adjudication of indigenous rights. He joins The Graduate Center from the University of San Francisco, where he was an assistant professor of International Studies.
