I am a scholar of modern and contemporary 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. My core questions involve precarious subjectivities, physical permanence, material remnants after death, and other existences at the limits of life and of capital.
