Elizabeth Osborne

Assistant Professor

My primary research looks at memory in post-dictatorial Southern Cone film and literature, with an emphasis on Chile. Currently I am pursuing a second line of research on the representation of domestic employees in Latin American film. The theoretical framework for each project involves gender, affect, and empathy to differing degrees.
