Emmanuel Ramos-Barajas is a scholar, educator, and research-based image maker who investigates the possession and consumption of land in US and Mexican art, cinema and visual culture.

Currently, he is the Media and Communications Coordinator for The Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University. Previously, he worked at the social media company we are mitú producing video content.
