Visiting Scholar, Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies

Marcela Filizola (she/her/hers) has a PhD in Comparative Literature from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Her research explores some of Virginia Woolf’s novels and essays as well as Francesca Woodman’s photography, considering their works through a gendered perspective in order to question a dominant epistemological view. As a researcher from Latin America, she is interested in incorporating postcolonial and decolonial critiques into her readings as a way of producing dialogues between the Global North and Global South. In addition to that, she has published essays around feminist and queer literary and cultural movements in Latin America, which are topics she plans to further investigate as a visiting scholar at Northeastern.
