moral economy gonzalez

Jaime Acosta Gonzalez is a PhD candidate in the Program in Literature at Duke University.  His dissertation, Writing in the Interregnum: Fiction and the Neoliberalization of Democracy examines how contemporary fiction encodes both the breakdown of the interstate geopolitical system and the failure of new global democratic forms to emerge in the age of globalization. 

His research interests include American and Latin American literature, Marxism and theories of globalization. He is currently co-editing a special issue of Polygraph on the theme of “Neoliberalism and Social Reproduction.”
