Iliana Alcántar

Iliana Alcántar specializes on Mexican literary and cultural studies. Her current research and developing book manuscript deal with revisions of gender and representation in contemporary Mexican literature, film, and performance art. Using literature as a point of departure, she demonstrates how women’s writing and feminism provide mechanisms that subsequently afford women possibilities for self-representation in film and performance art, allowing them to articulate a critique of patriarchy, nationalism, and modernity.
