He specializes in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Mexican literature, art and culture with an emphasis on intellectual, political and aesthetic practices and history. His current research, Eyeing the World: Mexican poets and the visual arts (1921-1969), explores Mexican poet-critics and their writings on art, politics and culture in the first half of the twentieth century. He is also co-editing a volume of critical essays dedicated to the films of Arturo Ripstein.
