I’m interested in Latin American Literature and Culture of the 20th and 21st century. By grounding on queer and queer of color theory, as well as gender and sexuality late theorizations and studies, I analyze literary representations of violence against queer and trans subjects portrayed in the works of several Latin American contemporary authors. The range of queers and trans characters depicted in the narratives of authors such as Luis Zapata, Enrique Serna, Luis González de Alba, Miguel Huezo Mixco, and Manuel Puig, open a space to explore and delve into the study of queer and trans identities in the Latin American context, from both an identitarian and analytics perspective.
