Alessandro Fornazzari works on contemporary Latin American literature and cultural studies; other interests include critical theory, film (with a focus on the documentary form), the visual arts, and political economy. Fornazzari’s current research focuses on the post-dictatorial problems of memory and restitution in the Southern Cone and on theoretical and artistic reflections on consumption and debt. This research forms part of a more general project in which he explores the relations between culture and the economy in the context of the regionally distinct neo-liberal transitions which have marked much of Latin America since the 1970’s.
