Describe your undergraduate research or creative project:
My research aim is to investigate the representation of femicide in various films and theatrical productions. Femicide is the term used to refer to the period of brutal violence towards women in Juarez, Mexico from 1993 to the early 2000s. Since that time, it has received significant international attention and has become the inspiration of many cinematographic and literary pieces. In order to investigate its representation in contemporary works, I analyzed a selection of documentaries, fiction films, and plays in order to see how each author attempts to convey the topic as well as highlight any underlying messages in relation.
