George Flaherty specializes in Latin American and Latino visual and spatial cultures since 1940, with additional research interests in film and media studies and postcolonial theory. He is close to completing a book manuscript that explores the spatial dimensions of the 1968 student movement and Tlatelolco massacre in Mexico City and their representation, tentatively titled Hotel de Mexico: Hospitality and Dwelling on 1968. George's research has been supported by the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (National Gallery of Art, Washington), Getty Foundation, Social Science Research Council, Society of Architectural Historians, and a Fulbright-García Robles grant to Mexico, where he was a visiting scholar at the Instituto de Investigaciones Estéticas of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. His essays and reviews have appeared in Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, History of Photography, Desafio de la estabilidad: procesos artísticos en México, 1952-1967 (MUAC 2014), and Latin American Modern Architectures: Ambiguous Territories (Routledge 2012). He has also contributed to curatorial projects at the Harry Ransom Center, Autry National Center and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. A graduate of Swarthmore College and the University of California, Santa Barbara (PhD 2011), George is an assistant professor of art history and associate director of the Center for Latin American Visual Studies (CLAVIS) at the University of Texas, Austin.
