Javier Guerrero

Information
jg17@princeton.edu
Associate Professor of Spanish and Portuguese
Institution: Princeton University
Department: Department of Spanish & Portuguese
Research Interests: Javier Guerrero’s research focuses on the intersection between visual culture and sexuality in twentieth- and twenty-first century Latin America. His scholarship centers the body, extensively exploring the unexpected ways in which it participates in its own material processes, at times transforming itself, as it deploys novel technologies that destabilize the symbolic sphere of sex. He also traces the multiple metamorphoses that the body has undergone in contemporary art, cinema, and literature, but also and most notably at the intersections of these media. In recent years, Guerrero has paid special attention to new conditions and matters such as darkness, synthetic bodies, and the archive, prompting reevaluations of knowledges traditionally defined by binary oppositions.
