Expertise20th- & 21st-Century Latin American Literature and Culture; Comparative Media; Colonial Latin American Studies
ProfileMy research focuses on 20th and 21st century Latin American literary and media history, and on colonial Latin American studies. Within these fields, I am particularly interested in exploring historical changes in dimensions of texts and artworks that antecede or transcend meaning and representation, such as the materiality of print and other media, and the emotional effects of narrative forms.
