Isabel Arciniegas Guaneme

Pronouns: she/her

Research interests:

After working seven years as a freelance designer and five years as a lecturer in audiovisual production for social sciences students, I became interested in anthropology for its potential to cross the frontiers of knowledge. The huge challenge with my students was to explain the complexity of the social sciences through well-made audiovisual resources. I have always found in my design skills the best ally in this challenge. Now, I’m a PhD student at the Anthropology Department, while I continue working as an independent designer, as the Student Advisor for this Department, and as a fellow for the Zolberg Institute for Migration and Mobility. I’m interested in exploring the obsessive promises of modernity’s utopias in developmental projects in Colombia. And my design heritage encourages me for seeking alternative languages in academic knowledge production. I hold an undergraduate degree in Interactive Media Design at Icesi University (Colombia), a MA in Anthropology from NSSR, and I definitely committed to the idea that the best way to know the world is by walking.
