Research

I’m interested in cultural productions of twentieth- and twenty-first-century Mexico and Argentina. In particular, I study representations of feminist social movements, maternity and non-patriarchal parenthood, abortion rights, and hagiographies. Lately, I’ve been working on fiction representations of the Argentine folk saint la Difunta Correa.
