Gabriela Oré Menéndez Ph.D.

Investigación en Análisis Geoespacial y Sensorial Remoto, Humanidades Digitales, Antropología y Arqueología Marica y los Andes Peruanos

Research in Geospatial and Remote Sensing Analysis, Digital Humanities, Queer Anthropology and Archaeology and the Peruvian Andes

Gabriela is a Peruvian archaeologist working in satellite remote sensing, digital humanities, decolonial studies, and landscape archaeology. She is an incoming assistant professor and the Department of Anthropology and UNLV. Her research focuses on understanding spatial inequalities in past landscapes and local communities’ responses in the face of extensive social changes. Gabriela’s experience in Digital Scholarship and Digital Humanities offers a unique perspective on the application of digital initiatives for social sciences and spatial analysis research and outreach. Gabriela’s stronghold on creative thinking to digital innovations offers an invaluable take on research areas like the humanities, social sciences, spatial analysis, remote sensing and image interpretation, and machine learning.

Gabriela’s second line of scholarly pursuits connects Queer Theory with Anthropological and Archaeological Scholarship. She has engaged in multiple public-facing outreach initiatives, including as part of the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) where she has extensive service in the Queer Archaeology Interest Group and the SAA Meeting Safety Committee. Gabriela is committed to developing an intersectional, multivocal, and global queerization of academics, incorporating binary-breaking research topics and research development.

Main Research Interest and Projects

Here you will find my latest research about geospatial analysis, multispectral satellite remote sensing and image analysis in general.

Queer archaeological practice, queer ethnography, queer anthropology and queer feminsit global approaches are part of my theoretical aproaches. Pása y conversemos!

PARTY (Proyecto arqueológico Reducciones Toledanas-Yauyos) es el componente de campo de mi investigación en Huarochirí usando imágenes aéreas y satelitales.
