Area of Study
PhD in Literary and Cultural Studies
My research focuses on 19th and 20th-century literature, visual culture, and law in the US-Mexico borderlands with attention to conceptions of race, nation, and gender. I am primarily interested in exploring how diasporic cultural productions push against regimes of representation that contribute to violent juridical knowledge-making processes.
