María Moreno Carranco

María Moreno Carranco holds a PhD in Architecture from UC Berkeley; she is a professor at the Department of Social Sciences at UAM-Cuajimalpa, where she teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in urban studies. Her recent publications include a coedited book called Spaces of Fear: bodies, walls, cities (2021) that was motivated by an interest in exploring the ways in which emotions and the materiality of the built environment intersect and transform each other. She also coauthored a book with sociologist Rocio Guadarrama called Mundos Habitados: espacios de arquitectura, diseño y música (2020) which departs from established frameworks for studying the creative city, proposing a more situated analysis that considers urban history, the particularities of the place, and the role of everyday practices in urban life.
