Juan Pablo is a teacher, writer and interdisciplinary researcher whose work is set at the intersection of the humanities and social sciences. He earned a BA in Government and International Politics and an MA in English with a concentration in literature from George Mason University. He is currently a doctoral candidate at the Program in Modern Thought and Literature at Stanford University. His dissertation is a history of the development of architecture and territorial planning in the Latin American city of Bogotá, Colombia during the 20th century. This study pays attention to the mobilization of design and planning as instruments of urban and civic governance. This inquiry proceeds via microhistorical investigations of architectural objects, constructive techniques, planning instruments and technical and cultural discourses. It frames these analyses against the background of social theoretical and media theoretical discussions regarding links between agency, knowledge, operations, technology, territory, environment, production and governance.
