Amir is a doctoral candidate currently conducting fieldwork to investigate the role of murals in shaping how people imagine and practice democracy in urban Guatemala. His project aims to better understand how different groups of residents imagine, enact, and transform the socially constructed parameters of democratic citizenship. He is more broadly interested in moments and spaces of collective deliberation, when and where people articulate and contest different political cultures and public moralities; and in the ways that different social arrangements are afforded varying degrees of visibility, legitimacy, and mutability.
