My research focuses on gender and Latin American modernism. I am currently completing work on a monograph entitled The Space of Latin American Women Modernists which offers a new reading of Latin American modernism through the lenses of gender and space. By analyzing the contributions of eight contemporaneous women –four writers and four plastic artists– this study highlights the way in which they constructed and conceived of their identities as artists through distinctly spatial tactics. Organized around four key themes (domestic architecture, the public sphere, the natural world, and travel), this multidisciplinary, comparative monograph sheds new light on the works of well-known figures such as Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral, whilst bringing to the fore artists that remain virtually unknown, such as Bolivian sculptor Marina Núñez del Prado.
I recently edited the Latin American section of Global Modernist on Modernism: An Anthology which will be published as part of Bloomsbury's Modernist Archives Series in November 2019. I am additionally contributing to the forthcoming Oxford Critical and Cultural History of Global Modernist Magazines edited by María del Pilar Blanco, Eric Bulson and Andrew Thacker.
