Pablo Seward Delaporte received his Ph.D. in Anthropology from Stanford University in 2023 and will begin as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Saint Louis University in 2024. A critical medical and psychological anthropologist, Pablo’s research specializes in transnational Black and Indigenous migration in Chile. He integrates anthropological, decolonial, and feminist theories of racialization and embodiment with ecological approaches to health, inequality, and care. As a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the PSTC in 2023-2024, he will work on his current book project, Precarious Becomings: The Politics of Migrant Life in Chile, which examines state and community responses to migrant vulnerability that rely on different conceptualizations and transformations of urban space.
