About

Sofía Villamil, a native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, is working with Professor Marisel Moreno. Villamil’s research will be focused on aiding Professor Moreno with the final touches on her upcoming book, Crossing Waters: Undocumented Migration in the Cultural Production of the Hispanic Caribbean and Its Diaspora, as well as commencing research for her new project, a book that explores the artistic representations of Hurricane María and its devastation in Puerto Rico. Villamil will also be transcribing, translating, summarizing, and creating citations for a variety of scholarly works and interviews. These processes and analyses will allow her to further engage with her passion for studying Puerto Rico, social justice, and the intricacies of the Latinx identity.

Villamil is working in the summer of 2022 with an independent publishing company based in Quito, Ecuador named Anaconda Editorial. Made possible through Kaya Responsible Travel and with the sponsorship and support of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, Villamil is extremely happy and grateful to be working with a publishing company that amplifies indigenous, Ecuadorian, and broader Latin American art, literature, and culture while maintaining sustainable practices. During her internship, Villamil has been working on translating different books and publications, aiding in the organization’s new projects, supporting both aspiring and established artists in Ecuador, and networking with locals.
