I am a Venezuelan art historian, photographer and anthropologist. My current activities are focused on researching contemporary Caribbean literature as a doctoral student at Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain. In the areas of art history and ethnography, I have investigated the indigenous music of the Las Turas ritual in Falcon State, Venezuela. I have published essays on the relationships between identity and power with music and literature in anthropology and general arts scholarly journals. I have also presented papers on those subjects at conferences in Mexico, France and Venezuela. I live a happy life in Ann Arbor, Michigan, listening to my husband's cello and my cat's meowing.
