Marcone teaches courses on the theories informing the environmental humanities; and on the interrelationship between Latin America’s literature, film, and art, on the one hand, and environmental activism and socio-ecological resilience, on the other. His current lines of research focus on Amazonia, and on transdisciplinary research on water governance carried out at the SARAS Institute in Maldonado, Uruguay.
