Bio/Description

Amy is an undergraduate senior in the Art and Archaeology Department whose interests lie in photography, Surrealism, and Latin American art. She has taken several classes cross listed with Latin American Studies that range from comparative politics to cultural history. Since her freshman year, she has worked as a processor at the Latin American Ephemera Collection at Firestone which took her to Argentina for a summer, through a Streicker Fellowship, and solidified her interest in contemporary social movements in the region. Her Junior Independent Work, advised by Professor Irene Small, focused on the Pop poster scene that emerged in Cuba in the late 1960s. She is currently working on her thesis, advised by Professor AnnMarie Perl, which continues to explore Cuba’s cultural history.
