Sarah Warren

Assistant Professor of Sociology
I am a sociologist whose research explores the relationship between citizens and the state, as experienced and practiced through processes of racial formation and nation-building projects. I investigate how racial and national identities are negotiated through the politics that bind citizens and the state and how racially marginalized groups – specifically indigenous people – engage in their own processes of nation-building. To analyze these questions, I have conductedresearch in Chile and Argentina since 2003. I have an MA in Latin American Studies from the University of Texas at Austin and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
