Diego Arispe-Bazán, PhD



I received my PhD from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania in 2018. I am a linguistic and cultural anthropologist; my research centers on the production and circulation of history via linguistic and discursive strategies in interaction. More specifically, I focus on the schism that divides Iberian and Latin American valorizations of the colonial past, and how differences in dialectal Spanish forms reaffirm ideas about national, belonging based on ideologies surrounding colonization. My ethnographic research moves between Lima, Peru and Madrid, Spain countries investigates the global effects of economic crisis in the “developed” world. Furthermore, my ethnographic and semiotic approach allows for a fine-grained approach to understanding the composition of categories of race and class in Latin America as intertwined processes, both synchronic and diachronic.

I am also one of founders and organizers the Thinking Andean Studies Conference Series, as well as the affiliated Andean Studies Proseminars taking place in Cusco, soon in Quito. I am coproducer of the American Anthropological Association’s flagship podcast, Anthropological Airwaves and Web Assistant for the Society for Linguistic Anthropology.
