Water Want

Technology and Expertise in the Urgency of Drought in Argentina

My research focuses on technology and expertise in the urgency of drought in Argentina. The aim of this doctoral project is to gain ethnographic knowledge about how water scarcity and drought are understood, framed and managed by different social actors in the Esteros del Iberá (Corrientes, Argentina) through an anthropological perspective.

Doctoral Candidate: Matias Menalled

I studied Sociocultural Anthropology at the Universidad de Buenos Aires in Argentina (2017) and my Master in Anthropology at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (2020). Between 2016-2018 and 2020-2023, I worked as a Scientific Application Specialist with orientation in Disaster Risk Management at the Servicio Meteorológico Nacional in Argentina. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Cultural Anthropology at Uppsala University in Sweden and a member of the C-URGE Doctoral Network of Anthropology of Global Climate Urgency (2023-2027) funded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.
