Emanuela Guano’s research interests range from the study of ideology and the built and natural environment to the analysis of spatial practice and discourse, and from the critique of citizenship and the public sphere to the exploration of how gendered subjectivities are crafted in the public realm. In her ethnographies of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Emanuela Guano explored how the city functions as a locus, a medium, and a tool of hegemony and social and political struggle negotiate citizenship and the state through their everyday life.
She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology.
