Marco Garrido

Associate Professor, Sociology University of Chicago


Marco Garrido's research focuses on the relationship between the urban poor and middle class in Manila as located in slums and upper- and middle-class enclaves. The project has been to connect this relationship with urban structure on the one hand and political dissensus on the other, and in so doing, to highlight the role of class in shaping urban space, social life, and politics.
