Zita Nunes argues that the prevailing narratives of identity formation throughout the Americas share a dependence on metaphors of incorporation and, often, of cannibalism.

Cannibal Democracy explores what is left behind in the formation of identities and addresses the limits of the contemporary discourse of democracy.
