Sandra C. Medina is a Ph.D. Candidate and Teaching Assistant in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. She holds an M.A. in Spanish Literature from Rutgers University, a B.A in Spanish and a B.A in English from Montclair State University in New Jersey.

 

RESEARCH INFORMATION:
She is currently writing her dissertation The Remnants of the Armed Conflict: The Body In/After Violence in Contemporary Colombian Cinema, which studies the effects of violence as (re)presented by documentaries and fictional narratives of children’s enrollment in the armed groups, the beginning and expansion of violence in rural areas, and the displacement of the victims of the conflict. Her research shows how the bodily, physical legacies of violence— disappearance, torture and body mutilation, displacement and migration— transform traditional gender norms, and problematize the reintegration and rehabilitation of bodies.
