    Barely Bonded: Affective Politics and the Gendered Struggle for Water in Villa El Salvador, Lima, Peru

    Affect is increasingly understood as a critical element of political life and collective action in Latin America and elsewhere. It is critical to generating participation in collective action projects, sustaining or collapsing action, and how participants interpret the meanings and values of a project and the social relationships within it. More broadly, affective political experiences are markers of the sense of belonging or disaffection from others and broader political systems that are central to civic life. The meanings of participation after projects fade are often attributed mainly to the collective events themselves, and draw on one-off interviews after the events decline, or short ethnographies relatively close in time to the collective actions. As well, they often foreground the positive experiences that participants recall from collective action. Using 48 interviews and three years of participant observation, which followed 12 years of political and social engagement with women residents of Villa El Salvador (VES) in Lima, Peru, we challenge all three of these perspectives. The women were involved in a 20-year, materially successful, brokered collective action project to install water and sanitation systems in their neighborhood. The data reveal that long-term participants recalled actions in collective terms, but recounted affective experiences—mainly senses of abandonment and struggle—in individualistic terms. Unlike what most studies of collective action have concluded, these stories of being “barely bonded” to co-participants and leaders were not attributed to the collective actions themselves: they were told as part of stories of life-long gendered experiences of personal and state violence, state and family abandonment, and corrupt political practices in Peru. These affects were expressed with an insistence on sympathy from author 1, who has had long-term care relationships with people in VES. The methods and findings extend Latin American collective action scholarship that has documented disappointment and civil disaffection as outcomes of collective action, showing that longer-term forms of politics and relationships in which people’s political lives unfold (including with analysts), rather than collective action projects themselves, can reveal richer senses of the meanings of participation in collective action for civic life

    Integrating Current Analyses of the Breast Cancer Microbiome

    Get PDF
    This project integrates all available studies related to breast cancer and the mammary microbiome to 1) reassess the original findings in light of advances in this rapidly progressing field and 2) incorporate all the data available as a large meta-analysis to identify general trends and specific differences across patient cohorts and studies. In order to reassess original findings of each study, the 16S rRNA sequence data will be retrieved from SRA and analyzed using a bioinformatics pipeline, which will use an amplicon sequence variant. The results from the bioinformatics pipeline will be compared with the findings from the original studies. In order to identify specific trends and differences across patient cohorts and studies, I will compile the results from each of the available studies into a single dataset to assess for trends in microbial community interactions with breast cancer across studies. As different patient cohorts, 16S rRNA variable regions, and experimental protocols were used across the studies of interest, I will need to statistically account for these covariates in my model. The final ASV tables from the bioinformatics pipeline analysis for each study will be merged and assessed using multivariate analysis
