About Américas Studies: Welcome and thanks for visiting. The title of this blog, Américas Studies, reflects on my research interests: Chicana/o poetry, Americas Studies, transnationalism, border studies, feminism, gender, race, coloniality, film & television studies, social media, and digital humanities. It is an umbrella term for a plethora of thoughts and ideas that pop in and out of my mind, some that are part of my research, some informed by it, and some that simply find their home in this blog. As well as socio-political and cultural issues, this blog also contains posts about life as a postgraduate student, and issues pertaining to research and other scholarly pursuits. In short, this blog is an Irish feminist researcher in transatlantic dialogue with the Américas.
