Biography

  • He is an historian and anthropologist interested in inserting a conceptual perspective to his work and developing a creative relationship with the fieldwork and archive. His area of work is the social and cultural history in urban contexts, and the debate on equity, security and urban identities. His studies analyze the constitution of urban social sectors and disputes over memory and space of the city. He trained as an anthropologist in Catalonia and in Ecuador. Because of his solid knowledge in this area, he has been invited to give lectures and to participate in seminars and conferences in different countries. At FLACSO, he assumed the direction of the journal "Íconos" for eight years.
