Isabel Solange Muñoz

Assistant Professor of Geography, University of Tennessee

Solange Muñoz is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Her research interests focus on political, economic, and socio-spatial processes of marginalization and contestation. Her work focuses heavily on the everyday practices and experiences of mobility and access in urban areas. Employing qualitative and ethnographic methods, her research addresses social dimensions of urban life by examining how struggles for access to housing and to remain in the city are routinely lived and experienced by low-income communities. She is currently working on research that employs a ‘mobile ethnography’ to examine the socio-spatial and temporal impacts of displacement from the city—when families are evicted from their homes and forced out of the city.
