I am currently finishing my dissertation with the support of a Ford Dissertation Fellowship 2019 and a UC Dissertation Year Fellowship 2019-20. This project titled "Caribbean Imaginations in Twenty First Century Avant-Gardes" focuses on how digital imaginaries have become central to contemporary Caribbean literature and its engagement with the region’s past and future. I focus on works by Jorge E. Lage (Cuba), Rita Indiana (Dominican Republic), and Guillermo Rebollo Gil (Puerto Rico), among other experimental writers and artists, to propose a decolonial approach to literature and new media in the Caribbean.
