Transnational Assemblages of Agribusiness, Finance, and Infrastructure across China and South America

With Gustavo de L.T. Oliveira, Swarthmore College 

Drawing on political economy, global ethnography, and discourse analysis, Oliveira reveals the formation of a transnational capitalist class who assemble Chinese capital with Brazilian agribusiness and infrastructure for South American integration; the co-production of racial and environmental discourses about East Asian diasporas in Latin America; and how new financial instruments by Chinese, Brazilian, and US companies transform the environmental governance of farmland and biofuels around the world.
