    Professional Biography

    I will receive my Ph.D. in Romance Languages from the University of Pennsylvania this academic year. My work focuses primarily on 19th-21th Century Latin American literature—poetry, narrative, and essay—along with critical theory and philosophy. I am finishing a project on the creation of modern (lyric) poetry, poetics, and aesthetics in Latin America and Spain from the mid-19th century on. I am also working on a second project in which I study recent theoretical speculations on “political theology” (as Carl Schmitt understood it) in authors such as, among others, Alain Badiou, Slavoj Žižek, and especially Giorgio Agamben, and José Luis Pardo.
