My field of study is Brazilian literature, cinema, and culture. In particular, I am interested in the evolution of literary symbols over time, cinematic adaptation as translation, and representations of race. Lately, I have been studying symbology and national identity in Brazilian Modernism and the literary adaptations of directors Manoel de Oliveira and Luiz Fernando Carvalho.
