Research Profile

Professor Miseres specializes in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Latin American literature, with an emphasis on South America.  Her areas of research are travel writing, war literature, women writers, gender, cultural, and food studies. 

 

Her first book, Mujeres en tránsito: viaje, identidad y escritura en Sudamérica (1830-1910), analyses the travel accounts of Flora Tristan (1803-1844), Juana Manuela Gorriti (1816-1892), Eduarda Mansilla (1834-1892), and Clorinda Matto de Turner (1852-1909). Professor Miseres is also launching a new book project on Latin American women writing on war, from the Latin American independence period to World War II. This project has been awarded with a Mendel Fellowship (Lilly Library, Indiana University Bloomington) and a Global Gateway Faculty Research Award (University of Notre Dame) for the academic year 2017-2018.

 

Vanesa Miseres is a research faculty of the Gender Studies Program and a Fellow of the Nanovic Institute for European Studies and the Kellogg Institute for International Studies.

 

Miseres will be a guest scholar at Faber, the Arts, Sciences and Humanities Residency of Catalonia in Olot, Spain during the October-November residence term devoted to Feminism.
