Diana Eguía

Ph.D. Candidate, Hispanic Studies
Research Interests: 

I am currently working on my dissertation, Communities of Care: Giving Birth, Healing the Body, and Mediating with Death in Colonial Latin America and Pre-modern Iberia (1400-1650), focusing on reproductive work and ecofeminism. I intervene within the discussions about gender, colonialism, commons, motherhood, the body, the native concept of “buen vivir”, medicine, and health.

 Other research interests include Early Modern Literature, Contemporary Southern Cone Literature, Archival Studies, Contemporary Peninsular Political Movements. I have published articles in academic journals such as the Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, Voz y Letra, and Revista de Erudición y Crítica.

 I have taught different Spanish culture, literature and languages classes at UPenn and at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
