My research focuses on the dialogue between gender and genre in literature and the construction of subjectivity. Within the theoretical framework of Lacanian psychoanalysis, feminism, queer theory, and performance, I concentrate on Latin American and Latino film and cultural studies as well as Baroque Spanish drama. I explore representations of women and critical sexualities in Latino cultures as they appear in film, drama, and fiction. While supporting my interest in sexuality as a social construction that takes place when discourse, hegemonic power and desire intersect, this scope allows me to review recent trends in Spanish classical theater and in Latin American cinema.
