Ana Vivladi's interdisciplinary research brings politics of indigeneity and race into inquiries on the social production of space and embodiment. Through the use of visual and digital methodologies, it clarifies questions surrounding of indigenous sovereignties, forms of urban conviviality, and the making of social, political and spatial assemblages by subaltern populations. Overall, it contributes to understanding governance and development in Latin America, in their intersections with processes of urban formation, ethnic and racial relations, and economic informality.
