Research: 

Mariana Amato specializes in Latin American literary and intellectual history from the 19th century onward, with focus on the Southern Cone, including Brazil. Her work has a strong interdisciplinary character and particularly engages the intersections between literature and critical theory, with emphasis on psychoanalysis and political philosophy. Mariana has written articles on the narratives of Lucio V. Mansilla, Leopoldo Lugones, Mario Bellatin, Alan Pauls and Horacio Quiroga. She is working on a manuscript that explores figures of the animal and the flesh in Latin American fiction of the 20th century, through the framework of biopolitics. Her following project will examine the notion of exceptionality among Latin American writers and intellectuals of the 19th century.
