Laidlaw Summer 2020 Deborah Video

In this video I talk a little bit about the research I did for my first Laidlaw summer. It's still a work in progress, and I look forward to continuing to work on it in some capacity for the rest of the summer.

Summary: For the past six weeks, I’ve been researching the representation of gender-based violence and feminicide in contemporary Latin American and Latinx art, and how artistic practices engage with politics, activism, and the feminist social movements in Latin America, the U.S. and elsewhere. My project examines how two different contemporary artists of Latin American origin, Judithe Hernández and Lorena Wolffer, approach the issue of gender-based violence and feminicide through their artworks.

Laidlaw Scholar, Columbia University

Rising junior at Columbia University pursuing a double major in Economics and Art History. Proud Latin American with a passion for celebrating Latinx culture and exploring the social, political, and economic issues that surround the region. I'm deeply interested in the arts and culture, but also in business and economics. This summer I'll be doing research on the decolonization of art historical narratives from the late 19th/early 20th century.
