Broadly speaking, I’m interested in the philosophy and politics behind Latin American dictatorships and the subsequent studies in memory and trauma that follow. My research tends to focus on post-dictatorship Southern Cone literature. Lately I have been working on articles centered on the representations of women and sexuality in post-dictatorship Argentine crime fiction.
