Profile

Daniella Wurst holds a B.A in Hispanic Linguistics and Literature from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú and an M.A and M.Phil in Latin American and Iberian Cultures from Columbia University. Her research focuses on the intersection between politics and aesthetics within memory discourses in Latin America. She is interested in the fruitful dialogue between personal and collective memory and in the artistic representations and narratives that are born from such encounters. In the field of memory studies, she has found an expansive and interdisciplinary platform where to engage visual and literary analysis in conversation with different disciplines, among them: photography criticism, feminist scholarship, queer theory, and philosophical debates regarding history and temporality.
