Paula Vásquez Lezama


 I hold a doctorate in Social Anthropology and Ethnology from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris (2007). I graduated in sociology from the Central University of Venezuela in Caracas, and have done research as well as taught political, social and medical anthropology. My academic interests include the political anthropology of the State in Venezuela.

My scientific contributions deal with the questions of the State of exception, the Political Subjectivities and the Political Regimes in Oil Countries.My books, Poder y catástrofe. Venezuela bajo La Tragedia de 1999 (2010) and Le chavisme. Un militarisme compassionnel (2014) take a look from within Chavismo, deciphering the mechanisms through which the relationships, both political and psychosocial, between Chávez's movement and the Venezuelan people were articulated.
