I’m Ana, a writer and Ph.D. student in Romance Languages and Literatures at Harvard University, where I study ecological thinking and practices of regeneration in the Anthropocene through the perspectives of Indigenous and Afro-Brazilian epistemologies. During 2015-17 I worked on a master’s degree in Brazilian Studies at the University of Lisbon (2017), when I was also an exchange student at the CREPAL (Centre de recherches sur les pays lusophones) at the Sorbonne Nouvelle – Paris III. I am currently working on a secondary field in Critical Media Practice.

Research Interests: postcolonial studies, ecological thinking, anthropology, ecofeminism, Indigenous and Afro-Brazilian material cultures
