Juan Esteban Plaza

Juan Esteban Plaza is a PhD candidate in Iberian and Latin American Cultures at Stanford University. His research centers on the relationship between literature and racial politics in Cuba during the Second Republic (1940-1959). His work on Caribbean and Latin American literatures of the 20th and 21st centuries stands at the intersection between post-humanism, racial critique, gender theory, and postcolonial theory. He has published scholarly articles and essays on Latin American literature, cinema, and culture in journals and publishing houses like Cuadernos de Literatura (Colombia), Revista Mapocho (Chile), Catedral Tomada (Pittsburgh), Revista Chilena de Literatura (Chile), Revista Trama (Chile), Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro (México), and Metales Pesados (Chile). In 2019, his translation of Stan Brakhage's book "Film Biographies" was released by Ediciones Bastante in Santiago, Chile, under the title "El asedio de las imágenes." He is also regular host in a podcast on Caribbean studies and gender studies at the Hispanic Section of New Books Network (NBN en español).
