Dr. Díaz-Basteris is an interdisciplinary scholar who has dedicated her research and teaching practice to understanding U.S. Caribbean/Latinx cultural forms of resistance to displacement, coloniality, and racial capitalism through literature, popular art, and comics from the mid-20th to 21st centuries. Her current research is looking at visual representations of topics, such as Femicide in Puerto Rico, the undocumented American life experience, the social-political crisis of disasters’ aftermath, and the communal digital storytelling of forced displacement.
