Oriana Bernasconi

PhD in Sociology (London School of Economics), a Master's degree (MPhil.) in Cultural Studies (Birmingham University) and a sociologist from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. His work examines subjectivity and individuals in contemporary neoliberal society, especially at its intersection with morality, and often from a historical perspective. In recent years, his research has focused specifically on the issues of political violence and the role that documentation of human rights violations and archives play in a society's ability to deal with violent pasts. Since 2018, he has been expanding these questions towards the analysis of other forms of political violence and societies such as Colombia and Mexico. His work has been published in Subjectivity, Sociology, Symbolic Interaction, Discourse & Society, Colombia Internacional, among other magazines. In 2016, he led the foundation of the Interdisciplinary Program in Memory and Human Rights of the Alberto Hurtado University, which he coordinates with Professor Elizabeth Lira (Faculty of Psychology).
