Research

I’m interested in Brazilian contemporary poetry, in particular I’m interested in the interaction between poetry and other modes of cultural production like the audiovisual and the performance arts in order to understand its potentiality to respond to current political and social issues in Brazil.

Lately, I’ve been working on the analyses of spaces of poetic creation in contemporary Brazilian literature based on a theory derived from the hybrid landscapes constructed by João Cabral de Melo Neto.

I am also interested in the cultural production engaging with (self)representation of rural Brazil.
