Maria Paula Molano Parrado

Romance Studies


María Paula holds a B.A. and an M.A. in Literature from the Universidad de Los Andes. She researches the intersection between nature and the supernatural in Latin American literature and visual culture from the 20th and 21st centuries. Currently, she is examining how writers and photographers have portrayed the deserts of the Americas, enabling the questioning of regimes of knowledge, power, and violence that are pierced by coloniality.

Her academic interests encompass environmental humanities, the ontological turn, media theory, political ecologies, and questions related to gender.

In addition to her academic research, she is also a photographer.
