Ph.D in Spanish

Research Interests

I’m a first-year student in the Ph.D. in Spanish. I earned my BA in Literature in 2006 at the Universidad Central de Venezuela, where I also taught Venezuelan Literature from 2013 to 2018. In 2009 I graduated from the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella (MA). My research focuses on the tensions between coloniality and counterculture in the South American Independence Revolution. I’m also interested in 21st Century’s Latin American wall-painting and fiction narrative dealing with the memory of State Terrorism.

From 2016 to 2018 I directed the global solidarity economy index Chamba.Coop.

From 2012 to 2015 I was a teacher in the independent Venezuelan school of design ENGRAPO, which offered free professional education in Visual Communication to young people in Caracas, from a Popular Education approach.
