Fellow in Research Area 2: "Travelling Matters", January – June 2023

Haley Stewart is a PhD candidate in the Department of Comparative Literature at the University of California, Berkeley, where she primarily works on Latin American literature, film and art of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. She holds two MPhil degrees in European Literature and Latin American Studies from the University of Cambridge. Her transnational work engages with the theoretical concerns of ecocriticism, environmental humanities and Anthropocene studies from the local, postcolonial and ch’ixi experiences of a region long identified with and exploited for its natural resources, and home to non-Western, Amerindian cosmologies and ontologies. During this fellowship, she will begin to work on her dissertation, which looks at the emergence of post-anthropocentric memory cultures in the Andean and Southern Cone regions from the 1970s onwards.
