Speaker Bio

Marco Garrido

Marco Garrido is an Associate Professor and the Director of Undergraduate Studies in Sociology at the University of Chicago. His work has primarily focused on examining the relationship between the urban poor and the middle class in Manila, specifically within the context of slums and upper- and middle-class enclaves. His research project aims to establish a connection between this relationship and urban structure on one hand and political dissensus on the other. Through this, he highlights the significant role of class in shaping urban space, social life, and politics.
