I am a PHD in sociology, mainly dedicated to the historical sociology of social change and paths of stabilization. My main interest is the multidisciplinary approach to the issue of State Formation and the national question. This is because the value of the category to explain changes in the political ties with the state. My idea is that the nation is a category for understanding the historicity of relations between state and society. In general, "nation" is an apt category that extends the explanatory reach of other categories for the articulation of "state-society." Concepts of an organizational type (civil society), interest representation (corporatism, clientelism), legal status (citizenship) or the exercise of authority (governance) clearly define central dimensions to capture types of political domination. However, these are not categories that include, as primary factors, the historical variations in the ideas of a community that organizes in the presence of a state.
