CIPR Post-Doctoral Fellow

Jessica J. Price studies indigenous and minority politics in Latin America. Her research interests include: indigenous and ethnic politics; the politics of minority rights; clientelism and political mobilization; social movements; legal reform; and environmental politics. Price received her Ph.D. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015. Her dissertation, “We Will Not Be Quiet: Clientelism, Keystone Organizations, and the Dynamics of Protest in Indigenous Southern Mexico,” analyzes the causes and results of public protest in the region. She is currently at work on a book manuscript that expands upon this research and draws on an original dataset of protest events she coded from local newspapers and on her fieldwork in Chiapas, Oaxaca, and Yucatan, Mexico.
