Sofía Forchieri is a PhD candidate at the Institute for Culture & History at Radboud University Nijmegen. She holds a BA in Comparative Literature and Romance Studies (Goethe University Frankfurt, 2017) and an MA (research) in Comparative Literary Studies (Utrecht University, 2020). Her research focuses on contemporary Latin American literature, cultural memory studies, and perpetrator studies, with particular interest on the relationship between aesthetics, affects, and critique.

Sofía’s PhD project explores how recent Latin American artistic engagements with the problem of feminicide address questions of complicity and implication in gender-based violence. Drawing on feminist theory, new formalism, affect theory, and memory studies, the project aims to develop an analytical toolset for investigating the aesthetic, critical, affective, and ethico-political work that the arts can perform to counter implication in gender violence in Latin America and beyond.

Sofía’s PhD project is supervised by Prof. Brigitte Adriaensen and Prof. Liedeke Plate.
