I’m interested in Hispanic literature and culture, with a focus on 20th-century and contemporary Hispanic literature. Lately, I have been working on the representation of chronic diseases in literature and culture, specifically the AIDS/HIV pandemic and its impact. My research explores how bodies are represented in Argentine literature during and after the AIDS pandemic.

My dissertation covers mostly queer Argentine literature written after the 1976-1983 dictatorship. I am interested in how the AIDS pandemic and its repercussions until the present change the way the ill body is narrated, now following first-person accounts. Many cultural works around disease shift their focus and point of view on how to narrate the experience of the body during global-scale challenging times. Letters, diaries, chronicles, and experimental novels propose innovative ways to understand and connect writing with chronic illnesses while scaping prescriptive paradigms and stigma that populated the cultural field from the 80s until the present.
