Research Description

I have taught and written about Latin American literature from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries. My focus has been on North/South cultural relations, literature and politics, gender theory and culture. My most recent book is titled The Senses of Democracy: Perceptions, Politics, and Culture in Latin America  (2018), a study of the representation of the senses during moments of crisis in Latin America from the early nineteenth century to the present.
