I specialize in colonial Latin American literary and intellectual culture, as well as comparative early American studies. My research examines the way early modern imperial powers negotiated the writing of history in the first two centuries of the conquest and consolidation of European power in the New World. Additional interests include the relationship between literariness and psychoanalysis, national identity, trauma studies, indigenous writing and the intersection of law, literature and political culture.
