Art History, MA, 2017

I am interested in colonial Latin America, especially the Andes, and the complex art forms that result from colonial hegemonic societies. I have recently been researching textile production in the Andes and how both indigenous and Spanish spirituality and religion manifest themselves in colonial clothing. I am also interested in memory, identity, and in the construction of meaning; especially in societies that have undergone extensive change or a traumatic event such as the Spanish Civil War and the colonization of the Americas.
