Queer Networks: Latin American and Spanish Writers, Artists and Patrons in the First Half of the XXth Century

Research and writing leading to publication of a book on Latin American and Spanish women writers, artists, and patrons who challenged heterosexual norms of family, sexuality, reproduction, and economic dependency in the first half of the twentieth century.

My book project, Queer Networks: Latin American and Spanish Writers, Artists and Patrons in the First Half of the XXth Century, maps--thanks to mostly unpublished archival documents--a network of queer Latin American and Spanish women artists, writers, and patrons (both well-known and forgotten) who traveled widely and challenged heterosexual norms of family, sexuality, reproduction, and economic dependency. Starting from a broader concept of queerness as developed by Halberstam together with sociological concepts of social networks and network visualization software (Palladio), this project seeks to reconstruct and analyze these queer networks and their impact in the cultural field between 1920 and 1950.
