Tania Gutiérrez-Monroy

Tania Gutiérrez-Monroy is an assistant professor of architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She studies architecture as a material and signifying practice that spatializes both colonial/patriarchal forces and resistance strategies. Tania’s 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 practised architectures, race and gender in spaces of conflict, and landscapes of Indigenous resistance. Prior to joining UWM, Tania was the 2021–2022 Emerging Scholar Fellow at the Gerald Hines College of Architecture and Design, at the University of Houston. She holds a Ph.D. and an M.Sc. in Architecture from McGill University, as well as a B.Arch. from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. She has taught architectural history, theory, design, and research methods at the University of Houston, the University of British Columbia, Louisiana State University, and Université Laval.
