upik djalins is currently working on her doctoral degree at Cornell University in
the field of development sociology. Her research interrogates state formation in late

combines sociology, anthropology, history, and postcolonial studies, and her theo-
retical grounding is informed by the tensions between poststructuralist and historical
materialist theories. She received her master of environmental sciences degree from
the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
