I am currently a PhD student in Spanish. My research interests are focused on creative processes in conditions of dispossession, exploitation, escape, transit, diaspora or displacement. During my studies in sociology at the University National Autonomous of Mexico, I analyzed the work of the French historian Ivan Jablonka, and my research "Escribir hasta resistir ¿Contrasociología" was focused on the relationship between literature and sociology in epistemological and methodological terms. Now, my research doctoral on Spanish-Hispanic American culture and literature includes topics of epistemologies, metodos, narratives and affective y transnacionales policies, feminist y decolonial, but, in my intellectual work also I am looking for other ways of interpret, research, and express the world in a dialogue between art, social sciences, and humanities.
