Andrea Ballesteros is an assistant professor of anthropology at Rice University. Her work looks at the unexpected ethical and technical entanglements through which experts understand water in Latin America. In recent years her research has focused on following the paths of water pricing in Costa Rica, bureaucratic care for water in Brazil, and traveling water knowledge throughout Latin America. Her talk is part of the Georgia Workshop on Culture, Power and History.
