Dr. Deborah Poole is a professor of anthropology and specialist on Latin America. She is co-director of Experimental States, a large-scale project in Peru which addresses the question of how to deploy ethnography, known for its attention to detail, to the everyday, the subjective, the relational, the intimate and unexpected, in the task of understanding the modern state. It hopes to achieve a greater understanding of the state as a space of experimentation. She is editor of the Blackwell Companion to Latin American Anthropology and author of numerous books and articles.
