Maria Gloria Robalino

María Gloria is an architect and scholar working at the intersections of environmental literature, visual culture and gender studies. She is an alumna of Swarthmore College and Harvard University. Her dissertation traces the history of vertigo in the 17th century transoceanic world; attending to both the continuity of indigenous thought in conceptions of gender and animate space as to their distortion in colonial practices of economic extraction. She is the co-editor of the upcoming issue on accent for Perfect Strangers, an arts magazine dedicated to the cross-cultural. She also runs Matters of Voice, a research workshop on vocal studies housed in the Stanford Humanities Center.
