Mónica Farías



I am an urban and political geographer with a strong focus on Latin America, particularly Argentina, who brings together feminist, Marxist and decolonial approaches. Broadly, my research contributes to attempts to understand the modalities and geographies of political change, and efforts to build connections between academic and grassroots political work. My work is guided by concerns about the spatial dynamics underpinning identity formation and political subjectivities, the conformation of political alliances across difference and urban citizenship. I have researched these issues by focusing on popular media and grassroots organizations in Buenos Aires.
