I work at the intersection of social scientific studies of culture, technologies of visual representation, gender and sexuality, ethnicity, and extractive capitalism in Latin America. I have studied early indigenous photography in Latin America at the turn of the 20th century and how these photographic portraits shape knowledge production (anthropology, ethnology, law, education, literature) for the dispossession of Indigenous land in nation-state building and economic development projects.
