I am interested in exploring the interrelation between cultural values and individual emotions as it is represented in literary fiction. My research uses a particular interdisciplinary approach to read and interpret the relation between emotions (especially shame and humour) and cultural identities in contemporary fiction from the Caribbean, Latin America and the U.S., bringing together literary criticism, psychoanalytical research and postcolonial and gender theory.
