Summer research and writing on Comparative Literature and East Asian and Latin American Studies.

My book project Disorientations: Latin American Fictions of East Asia explores the relationship between fiction, knowledge and knowing in Latin American discourses of China and Japan. By scrutinizing Brazilian and Hispanic American travel journals, novels, short stories and essays from the nineteenth century to the present, Disorientations engages with the epistemological problems of writing across cultural boundaries. The argument is divided into four chapters that create a constellation of historical and textual problems around a specific form of knowledge (ethnography, philology and fiction) and proposes a novel entryway into the study of East Asia and Latin American through the notions of cultural distance, fictional Sinology and critical exoticism. Disorientation is a rhetoric that not only revisits the hegemonic archive of the Orient from a Latin American point of view, but mostly, explores the literary potential of peripheral epistemologies in general.
