My research interests include the Latin American testimonio and the ecotestimonio (ecological testimony). Testimonio is a sub-genre of narrative prose, and has a very rich theoretical history in Latin America. The ecotestimonio is a term that I created to describe my research on decentering the anthropocentric nature of the classic testimonio text.
