Stathis G. Yeros is an urban historian, designer and architectural theorist. He completed his PhD in Architectural History and Theory at UC Berkeley with a dissertation titled “Spaces of Queer Citizenship: The Emergence of Queer Urbanism in the San Francisco Bay Area, 1964-present,” which forms the basis of his book manuscript. His work examines how space affects and is affected by struggles for social justice with a focus on contemporary queer culture and politics. He presented his research on AIDS activism and spatial justice at the Buell Dissertation Colloquium at Columbia University in 2021, and has delivered several papers at urban and planning history conferences. He has published essays on transgender and queer place-making and his two ongoing research projects concern discourses of citizenship in architecture and queer ecological imaginations in design practice. Prior to his PhD Stathis earned a Master of Architecture from UC Berkeley, where he was the recipient of a year-long Branner Travelling Fellowship, an MA in Art History and Theater from the University of Glasgow, and practiced architecture in San Francisco.
