My research and publications have focused on 20th and 21st Century Latin American historical fiction and Latin American cinema. My most recent publication dealt with Brazilian author Ana Miranda’s historical novel O retrato de rei. I am currently working on an article whose working title is “Keeping the Faith: Material Culture and Resistance in Luiz Antonio de Assis Brasil’s Breviário das terras do Brasil. I am also planning a project in Film Studies tentatively titled: “Cinema for a Global Village: The Films of Walter Salles.”
