Luciana Chamorro

Luciana Chamorro is a doctoral candidate in anthropology at Columbia University. Her dissertation, “‘Love is stronger than hate’: Authoritarian Populism in Post-Revolutionary Nicaragua,” investigates the paradoxes of authoritarianism in the name of the people. Based on twenty-four months of participant-observation between 2016 and 2018, it traces the mechanisms of governance developed by Daniel Ortega’s regime prior to the 2018 popular uprising that challenged his claim to power. Chamorro earned a B.A. in Anthropology at Princeton University. She is currently a fellow at Columbia's Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life.
