I work on contemporary Latin American literary and visual cultures in the the Andean and Amazon regions of Bolivia, Peru, and Ecuador. My forthcoming book, Beyond Human: Vital Materialisms in the Andean Avant-Gardes (Bucknell 2019)studies the ways that poets, performance artists, and installation artists animate natural materials like rocks, water, and the soil in their art to challenge the notion that the human is the privileged agent over a passive ecosystem. I draw on indigenous knowledge systems and political theory to make my arguments. I also work and publish on the exploitation of resources and indigenous populations in the Amazon region, as manifested in literature and visual art.
