Academic Appointments
  • Mellon Faculty Fellow of Spanish and Portuguese

  • Research Associate and Lecturer of Spanish and Portuguese

I am a scholar of modern and contemporary Afro-Latin America with a particular focus on the history of slavery and the literature, aesthetics, and philosophy of the Hispanophone Caribbean and Brazil. My research interests include Afro-Latin American writers in the nineteenth century, the history of political thought in the Caribbean, the relation between slavery and form, and critical theory and aesthetics of both Spanish America and Brazil. I am also interested in the relation between exile and correspondence, and architecture and politics in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Cuba.
