Biography

Constanza Burucúa is Associate Professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, at the University of Western Ontario (Canada). Her research focuses on the cinemas of Latin America and it follows two main lines of study: on one hand, she works on women filmmakers, questions of gender and representation; on the other, she is concerned with the presence of Latin American cinemas in the international film festival circuit. Her more recent publication is The Precarious in the Cinemas of the Americas, a volumen that she co-edited with Carolina Sitnisky (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018).
