Miranda García, MA

Miranda García is a PhD candidate in the University of Michigan’s Department of Anthropology.

She studies new media, advertising, entrepreneurship, and identity in Cuba and its diaspora. Her work draws on ethnography, oral history, and semiotic analysis to explore topics ranging from collective memory in Little Havana nostalgia shops to her current project on Cuba’s emerging advertising industry. Miranda takes an interdisciplinary and multimedia approach to academic inquiry, pairing more traditional research with film and other media forms.

Miranda is a fellow at the National Science Foundation and previously at the Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies. She received a BA in anthropology and art history from the University of Chicago, where she was also a Mellon Mays Fellow.
