Froylan Enciso



I was born in the tropical entrepôt, Mazatlán, Sinaloa, in 1981, and studied international relations at El Colegio de México (1998-2002). Currently I study the Ph.D. in history at SUNY-Stony Brook, where I served as President of the Graduate Student Organization (2010-2011). My dissertation project will focus on contested drug-commodities markets in Sinaloa, Mexico. In my studies about drug trades, I have explored different inter and multidisciplinary approaches. The one that convince me the most now is its study as contested psychoactive-commodities in its global circumstances. I have published more than 40 academic works and more than 100 journalistic articles. I also have given more than 50 conference papers, guest lectures and presentations in Mexico, the United States, Austria, Colombia and Panama.
