Marisol Fila is a PhD Candidate in Spanish and Portuguese. Marisol received her BA in History from the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. Marisol’s research interests include twentieth century black press and contemporary online publications by Afro descendants in Lisbon, São Paulo and Buenos Aires. More specifically, her work examines the mechanisms by which Afro descendant groups contest and negotiate the dominant ideologies of national belonging and the dialogues established across time, geographies, languages and medias. Marisol is also interested in Critical Pedagogy and Digital Humanities and in the ways in which technology and digital media can serve as a tool to share her research and work to a wider audience, but also to develop digital projects in partnership with Afro-descendant organizations across Portuguese and Spanish speaking countries.
