As part of her fellowship at the Institute of Latin American Studies, Giuliana will develop her doctoral thesis into a book manuscript, The Reconfiguring of the Lima Art Scene: Acting across Arenas. She will be presenting her work in different seminars, organizing a conference on art participation and its paradoxes, and expanding Latin American networks on visual arts and culture.
She mantains a close academic relationship with the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú where she is lecturer in the Department of Social Science and the Coordinator of the Visual Anthropology Research Group. Her courses have covered topics such as art and anthropology; museum theory and practices; material culture and materiality; urban anthropology; methodology and thesis seminars.
