“Our bodies are also occupied territories. Perhaps the ultimate goal of performance, especially if you are a woman, gay or a person ‘of color,’ is to decolonize our bodies and make these decolonizing mechanisms apparent to our audience in the hope that they will get inspired to do the same with their own.” -Guillermo Gómez-Peña

CSGS Visiting Scholar: Margaret Frohlich

CSGS Visiting Scholar: fall 2012/spring 2013

Margaret Frohlich

Margaret Frohlich is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Dickinson College with a PhD in Hispanic Languages and Literature from Stony Brook University. Her book, Framing the Margin: Nationality and Sexuality across Borders, won the international competition for the Victoria Urbano Prize for Criticism awarded by the International Association of Feminine Hispanic Literature and Culture. Studies in Hispanic Cinemas 8.2 (2012) recently published her article “What of unnatural bodies? The discourse of nature in Lucía Puenzo’s XXY and El niño pez/The Fish Child.” Her research also appears in the anthology Lesbian Realities/Lesbian Fictions in Contemporary Spain and in the journals Letras Femeninas and Romance Review.

Current research:

My project at the CSGS focuses on the aesthetic dimensions and politics of cinema and literature in the mobilization and production of sexual subjects in post-soviet Cuba. Central questions of this project are how pacts that would bind culture to the state function in the rhetorical landscape of U.S.-Cuban relations and how we might rethink sexuality in light of recent theoretical challenges to the concept of hegemony.
