Ricki O'Rawe is a Lecturer in Latin American Studies at Queen's University Belfast. I am interested in the intersections between art and religion/philosophy/politics in Latin American literature and art. To date my research has focused on artistic responses to the crises of Modernity and the diversification of self-creation that emerged as a result.
My research interests include: The Fantastic in Literature/Art/Film; Argentine Literature and Art; Hispanic Surrealism and Avant-Garde Movements; Religion and Spirituality in Hispanic Art and Literature; Questions of Self and Subjectivity in Latin American Literature and Art; Political Aesthetics in Hispanic Literature and Art; Hispanic Women Artists.
