Research Interests

My research articulates and explores the connections between rhetorical theory, postcolonial theory, subaltern studies, feminist theory, and Latina/Chicana and Latin American Critical Communication Studies. Working from within each body of literature, I explore how Latin American subjects come to voice in testimonio texts, illustrating and building theories of rhetorical agency. I also am concerned with the ways Latin American women challenge dominant paradigms that typically erase or silence their voices. Specifically, I am interested in the ways these women represent their pueblos’ [communities’] experiences and advocate for social change and justice.
