Page McClean
PhD Student

Page McClean is a PhD candidate in cultural anthropology.  Her dissertation explores conectividad, the Chilean keyword for infrastructural and connective development in the so-called “isolated” region of Aysén.  During her time with the CSO she will examine historical narratives from state-sponsored expeditions to research the origins of Chile’s “internal frontier” as a problem to be solved by engineering.  She intends to pair her findings with her own ethnographic research to reflect on competing ideas of knowledge and place.
