Ana Maria Leon is an architect and a historian of objects, buildings, and landscapes. Her research and teaching examines the modernity of the Americas and its transcontinental flows, with particular focus on how different publics relate to each other through spatial practices and discourses of power and resistance. She is Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan and holds an architecture degree from UCSG in Guayaquil, an M.Arch. from Georgia Tech, an M.Des.S. with distinction from the Harvard GSD, and a PhD in the History, Theory, and Criticism of Architecture from MIT. Leon is an active member of several collaborations laboring to broaden the reach of architectural history including the Feminist Art and Architecture Collaborative, the Global Architectural History Teaching Collaborative, the Settler Colonial City Project, and Nuestro Norte es el Sur (Our North is the South).
