José is a Ph.D. candidate at Concordia University’s department of Geography, Planning, and Environment. Drawing on new cartographic theories and practices, his Ph.D. research focuses on studying the life stories of individuals who experienced death in the context of migration. He proposes that cartography, through the mobilization of multiple analytical and artistic displays, can help understand that death is not the end of a story but the beginning and extension of many others. Additionally, José holds a BA in Human Geography from The Metropolitan Autonomous University in Mexico City and a Master’s degree in Geomatics from CONACYT’s Research Centre of Geospatial Information. His previous academic work includes studying everyday geographies and domestic spaces of the homeless in Mexico City and new approaches to link arts and humanities with cartography.
