In this episode, Andrea Ballestero speaks to Alison Kenner. Dr Ballestero is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Rice University and Director of the Ethnography Studio. Their research looks at the unexpected ethical and technical entanglements through which experts understand water in Latin America. This has included, in recent years, following the paths of water pricing in Costa Rica, bureaucratic care for water in Brazil, and traveling water knowledge throughout Latin America. Their first book, ‘A Future History of Water’ was published by Duke University Press in 2019. For more see:https://andreaballestero.com and https://ethnographystudio.org
