Research

I’m interested in Latin American Literature and Culture of the 20th and 21st century. In particular, I’m interested in gender and sexuality and queer studies. One of my main interests is the representations of queer subjectivities in the narratives of several Latin American contemporary authors. The works of the authors like Luis Zapata, Enrique Serna and Manuel Puig are among some of the narratives that depict a diversity of queer subjectivities that are essential for my main research interests.
