On the fragility of power: observations from Thailand with guest speaker Dr Claudio Sopranzetti, University of Oxford

Dr Claudio Sopranzetti's research interests sit at the nexus of theorisations of capitalism, urbanism, and social movements. In particular, he is concluding an ethnographic project on urban mediators and political participation in contemporary Thailand while beginning a new exploration on African traders in Southeast Asia and responses to the economic crisis in Italy.
