Tania Gutiérrez Monroy is an instructor of architecture at Louisiana State University. She is completing a PhD in architecture at McGill (Montreal) and her research interests include architecture and gender during conflict, as well as the way in which different categories of identity in general (gender, class, race, ethnicity, sexuality) intersect in space. Her dissertation examines how women of diverse social strata inscribed their active roles in the Mexican Revolution in the overlap between domestic and war spaces. Tania received a Bachelor of Architecture from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and a post-professional Master from McGill University. After two years of professional practice in Mexico, she decided to pursue a PhD. She worked as a researcher at StudioLibre, an initiative by Tangente: Laboratoire Mouvements Contemporains (Montreal) that proposed mobile or ephemeral architecture that brought together day-to-day choreographies and urban space. Her teaching experience includes a graduate research methods course at Université Laval (Québec City) and assisting teaching positions in undergraduate architectural design studios at McGill.
