Fernando Coronil, R.I.P.

I just found out Fernando Coronil, a Venezuelan scholar who I really admire, died this week. The Social Science Research Council’s Craig Calhoun wrote a post about Coronil’s untimely death. He was a leading decolonial thinker and a very geographically oriented anthropologist. A sad day. I have one post about Coronil’s co-edited book, States of Violence, and am a big fan of his monograph The Magical State.
