Dissertation topic:
Examining the performative aspect of feminine and queer identities within marginal literature and contemporary hip hop movements of Brazil, my research will expand on how the transmission of affects from these performances create activist subjectivities. Focusing on the nonverbal exchanges between the performer and the audience, I hope to show how embodied experiences operate outside hegemonic value systems.

Areas of interest:
Literary analysis, Visual Analysis, Performance Analysis, Intersectional Analysis, Critical Theory

Areas of interest:
Modern Brazilian & Portuguese literature; Poetics; Theater; Music; Contemporary Art; Queer Theory; Affect Theory; Psychoanalysis; Postcolonial Studies; Performance Studies; Consumer culture/globalization; Embodiment; Depictions of Sexuality

Additional information:
I completed my B.A. at the University of California Berkeley in Literature of Latin America, with a minor in Human Rights. I speak Portuguese and Spanish and have taught Portuguese, 21st century Feminism in the U.S., and the History of French Feminism.
