Ana Vivaldi

Ana Vivaldi’s interdisciplinary research brings politics of indigeneity and race into inquiries on the social production of space, mobilities, and embodiment. Through the use of ethnographic and visual methodologies it clarifies questions surrounding indigenous sovereignties, and emergent forms of urban conviviality, in particular, the way mobility among marginalized populations shapes social and spatial assemblages that challenge subordination. She received her Ph.D. Department of Anthropology at UBC in 2016. Along with her research in Argentina, she has worked in popular education, in collaboration with indigenous organizations, the environmental movement, and in Museum interpretation. She was a TA and Community Liaison for the field school for two years and a co-instructor in 2013, 2014, and 2016.
