Ethnisation and racialisation processes, as well as representation policies and black political subjectivities, are some of the issues addressed in his publications. He has also been interested in the geopolitics of knowledge and processes of location that shape disciplinary fields such as anthropology or transdisciplinary fields such as cultural studies.

Most of his publications, courses and talks are published in Red de Antropologías del Mundo (RAM) – World Anthropologies Network.

Eduardo’s award-winning article ‘Talks and disputes of racism in Colombia after multiculturalism’ is available to read on the Taylor and Francis website.
