Author profile: Marcos S. Scauso

Marcos S. Scauso is an Assistant Professor of Political Science in the Department of Philosophy and Political Science at Quinnipiac University. Previously, he was a research fellow at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame. His research lies at the intersection of International Relations and identity politics, with a concentration on indigenous voices in post-colonial Latin America and issues of intersectionality. Marcos Scauso holds a Ph.D. in Political Science, with a primary focus on International Relations and secondary interests in Political Theory, from the University of California, Irvine. He has directed two research documentaries about indigenous activisms in Argentina and Bolivia, which inspired his latest book, Intersectional Decoloniality: Reimagining IR and the Problem of Difference (Routledge 2020), which builds on extensive fieldwork in Bolivia to discuss indigenous voices that provide new pathways for reimagining how we conceptualize the problem of difference in International Relations, the continuing impact of legacies of colonialism, and the prospects for global peace and coexistence.
