Ofelia Lopez Madrigal,

Ofelia Lopez Madrigal

Ofelia Lopez is a PhD Candidate in the Romance Studies department (Spanish Track). Her research focuses on the relationship among race, gender and literary discourse in the Latin American cultural production. Ofelia´s doctoral dissertation, After of the Skin: Representations of Race in Post-independent Cuban Literature, addresses the ways in which race is named and problematized in Cuban literary texts of the Republic, the Revolution and the Special Period. She is also interested in the intersectional relations between blackness and indigeneity as colonial and subaltern constructs, in the Mexican literary tradition. She has been a visiting scholar at the University of Havana (2011), Brown University (2015), and the Alejo Carpentier Foundation in Havana, Cuba (2018).
