André Vereta-Nahoum is Professor of Sociology at the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), associate researcher at the Brazilian Center for Analysis and Planning (Cebrap) and the Center for Research on Culture and Economy (Nucec), Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Sao Paulo and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies. He is an economic sociologist interested in ethnographic approaches to the design, governance, and regulation of markets and economic institutions. His research focuses on the interplay of cultures, identities, discourses, and infrastructures in markets and economic governance, trying to understand how these distinct features of our social life and their agents come into being through entanglements of everyday and expert practices, discourses, and devices. His current research retraces the work behind the effectuation of economic crises as emergencies, focusing on the debates within communities of practice in economic policy and their cultures of expertise. He currently leads, with Frederick Wherry (Princeton University), the comparative research project Circuits of Economic Life in Times of Crisis.
