The Politics of Waiting in Argentina. Javier Auyero is the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Professor in Latin American Sociology at the University of Texas, Austin. Javier Auyero’s ethnographic study of lines and waiting rooms in Argentina analyzes the experience of submission to bureaucratic time and of waiting for the state to correspond beneficently as, temporal processes in and through which political subordination is reproduced (2). Auyero shows how waiting, or more precisely, making people wait, acts as a material and ideological tool for dominating underclass populations.

Scrutinizing the mundane interactions between the poor and the state, as well as underprivileged people’s confusion and uncertainty about the administrative processes that affect them, Javier Auyero argues that while waiting, the poor learn the opposite of citizenship. They learn to be patients of the state. They absorb the message that they should be patient and keep waiting, because there is nothing else that they can do.
