Dr. Georgina Cebey Montes de Oca (UNAM)

Georgina Cebey Montes de Oca received her Ph.D. in art history from the Department of Philosophy and Letters at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Her work focuses on the history of Mexican architecture with a special interest in how architecture is represented in the media, as well as in the process of writing architectural history. She was a fellow of the Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología de México (CONACYT) during her postgraduate studies, and in 2015-2016 she received a grant from the Programa Jóvenes Creadores del Fondo Nacional Para la Cultura y las Artes (FONCA) in 2015-2016. She also won the Premio Nacional de Ensayo Joven José Vasconcelos, México, in 2017.

Interested in understanding the development of the cities of the global south, her current work as a Teach@Tübingen fellow examines the role that peripheral housing plays in the history of urban sprawl as well as in collective memory, emphasizing the failure of the social housing projects in Mexico. This work focuses on the study of images from cinema and visual arts as representations of the megacity.

Dr. Roberto Robalinho Lima (UFF)

Roberto Robalinho received his Ph.D. in Communications from the Institute of Arts and Communications at Universidade Federal Fluminense in Brazil. His research focus on the relation between images, political and subjective production during Brazil's 2013 mass street protests. He is particularly interested in the liminal and contiguous relation between the masses on the streets and on the screens and how this affects political and subjective transformations in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Roberto won the "Biblioteca UFF" prize and published a book on the relation between the Iraq war and image based on his Masters research. He has also lectured in the Media and Cultural Studies department at Universidade Federal Fluminense. He has directed a series of short films and is in pre-production of his first long feature film that a won an important public grant, a documentary that visits the geographical and symbolical landscape of João Guimarães Rosa's literature.

Continuing his investigation on images and politics in relation to the Global South, his current research as a Teach@Tübingen fellow is to look at how contemporary Latin American cinema challenges a key concept in cinema, "the gaze", historically linked to colonialism, capitalism and patriarchy, in a sense that, these films moves us to develop another theoretical framework outside the boundaries of modernity.
