Research and Teaching Interests

Philosophy, Social Sciences, Epistemology, Aesthetics, Cinema and Literature.


I am a Ph.D. student in Spanish. I studied Sociology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). In my research "Escribir hasta resistir ¿Contrasociología?" I reflected on other ways of interpreting, investigating and expressing the world, establishing a dialogue between sociology and literature.
I did a diploma in Non-Fiction Narrative and I worked as editor and research assistant at the Institute for Social Research, UNAM. In 2018 I did a student stay at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA).
Currently, my intellectual interests are in Latin American cinema and literature.
