  • María Auxiliadora Castillo Soto | Euterpeproject Eu

    < Back María Auxiliadora Castillo Soto Short bio María Auxiliadora Castillo Soto holds an Erasmus Mundus Master’s Degree in Women’s and Gender Studies (GEMMA) from the universities of Granada in Spain and Ł ódź in Poland. She also holds a Master’s Degree in World Languages, Literature, and Linguistics from West Virginia University in the United States. Her research has focused on the teaching of English and Spanish as second languages, and literary analyses with an interdisciplinary perspective. In a broader sense, her research interests span feminist literary criticism, migration studies, transnational literature, postcolonial studies, and gender studies. Her teaching experience at the university level has ranged from teaching English and Spanish to Latin American culture and introductory gender studies courses. Research topic For the EUTERPE Project: European Literatures and Gender from a Transnational Perspective, María Auxiliadora’s research analyzes how daily embodiments of transnational self-identified women serve as adaptation and survival strategies in the host countries, and how these same strategies may also represent a sense of autonomy, power, and resistance. The project focuses on the analysis of non-fictional autobiographical works written by transnational subjects who have migrated and resettled in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom to identify the different ways in which these embodiments challenge European belonging and identification.

  • María Elena Bertos Quesada | Euterpeproject Eu

    < Back María Elena Bertos Quesada Short bio Holding a BA in English Studies and MA in English Literature and Linguistics at the University of Granada, I recently completed the Erasmus Mundus Master’s Degree in Women and Gender Studies at the University of Granada and Utrecht University. The MA thesis written for this master entitled “La Malquerida: Encountering Rhizomatic Spectres in the (Re)writing of the Legend of La Llorona” embodies my research interests in gender studies, hauntology and queer time from an interdisciplinary approach. Research topic I am mostly interested in rethinking the spectre as a subversive and liminal space where to negotiate and explore rhizomatic identities as well as to build resistance through affective connections resulting from spectral encounters. For this aim, in this thesis I will adopt a decolonial (Anzaldúa 1987; Schaeffer 2018), posthumanist (Radomska et al. 2020) and corpoaffective (Lykke 2022) theoretical framework combined with a methodology grounded on the notion of 'intra-mat-extuality' as proposed by Beatriz Revelles (2021), following the combinantion of ‘feminist close reading’ (Lukic and Sánchez 2011) and ‘diffractive reading’ (Barad 2007).

  • Laura Bak Cely | Euterpeproject Eu

    < Back Laura Bak Cely Short bio Laura Bak is a Gender and Diversity Ph.D. student at the Universidad de Oviedo. She holds a B.A. in Literary Studies from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, with a minor in Philosophy, and an M.A in Literature from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. Her work has focused on the problems and representations of space in exiled Latin American Jewish women’s autobiographical writing, emphasizing in the search and creation of places that have disappeared in the current geopolitical maps. Her research continues to explore the subject of ‘autocartography’ within life-writings by migrant women through the lens of counter-mapping, spatial justice, and geocriticism. Research topic The subject of imagination and representation of lost places in life-writings has been at the centre of my research trajectory. In this research phase, I plan to study how migrant women in Europe produce life-writings in an exercise of creating alternative representations of the spaces they inhabit and transit. I intend to designate this type of writing as counter-autocartographies as they challenge dominant cartographic representations and weave counter-maps that represent the perspective and understanding of the spaces dwelt by migrant women.
