The 6th international latin american cultural studies conference at the University of Pittsburgh april 1-3, 2010




Laura Gutiérrez is associate professor at the University of Arizona where she teaches Latin American and Latina/o Media Studies, Performance Studies, and Cultural Studies. Drawing on an interdisciplinary cultural studies framework and using a feminist theory and queer theory angle, Gutiérrez has written and published essays on topics dealing with contemporary Mexican video art, Mexican political cabaret and Chicana performance, and Latina/o literature. She is currently finishing a manuscript on contemporary Mexican and Chicana performance and video art, Unsettling Comforts: Sexualities in Contemporary Mexican and Chicana Performance,and embarking on research for a second book project on the female body's movement (across geo-political divides and across the stage) in cabaretera films from the so-called golden age film 'archives.'
