Griselda Flesler

Griselda Flesler is a tenured professor at the Chair of Design and Gender Studies at the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urbanism, principal researcher at the American Art Institute and PhD candidate in Social Sciences at the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. Being raised in a feminist household on one hand, and having acquired predominately Eurocentric graphic design education that didn’t relate to the Argentinian reality on the other, Flesler has started researching design as space of the construction and reproduction of gender relations, applying an intersectional lens. Her research focuses on symbolic violence of the university space and the queer uses of the institutional and public space. Flesler also serves as Head of Gender Office at FADU-UBA, developing and applying the “Protocol of institutional intervention in the case of complaints of gender violence, sexual harassment and gender discrimination”.
