Production Manager

Vera Coleman

As an ABD doctoral candidate in Spanish cultural studies at Arizona State University, Vera Coleman's research explores the convergences of gender, class, ethnicity, and the environment in the Spanish-speaking world while foregrounding the work of women and other marginalized groups whose aesthetic contributions remain underrepresented in mainstream cultural studies debates and college curricula. Her dissertation examines multispecies relationships in contemporary Latin American film, art, and literature while uncovering indigenous epistemologies about human-nonhuman entanglements in the age of the Anthropocene. Vera has received awards for her scholarly work from the Asociación Internacional de Literatura y Cultura Femenina Hispánica (AILCFH), Feministas Unidas, and the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE), and her articles have been published in the journals Gestos, Confluencia, Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment, and Letras femeninas.
