Tania Gutiérrez-Monroy is an architectural historian who studies architecture as a material and signifying practice that spatializes colonial and patriarchal forces as well as resistance mechanisms. Her research focuses on the ways in which different categories of identity intersect, are negotiated in, and transform space. Thematically, her work spans historical examples of ephemeral and practiced architectures, race and gender in spaces of conflict, and landscapes of Indigenous resistance. Prior to joining SALA, Tania was an assistant professor of architecture at the School of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee and she held the Emerging Scholar Fellowship at the G. Hines College of Architecture and Design at the University of Houston between 2021 and 2022. She holds a PhD and an MSc in Architecture from McGill University, as well as a BArch from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. She has also taught architectural history, theory, design, and research methods at the University of Houston, the University of British Columbia, Louisiana State University, and Université Laval.
