Welcome to Last Transmission from the Land of Monsters. My name is Juan Pablo Melo. I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Program in Modern Thought & Literature at Stanford University. In this blog I will post articles, commentaries and links related to my interdisciplinary interests and research topics. These mostly revolve around the analysis of urbanization processes in Latin America from a perspective informed by Critical Theory and questions related to the production of space, but which range more generally to philosophy, literature, cinema, and culture more generally considered.
