Mexico; narratives by F.Hernández, Pizarnik, and Peri Rossi riffing off Freudian essays on fetishism and lesbianism; and the Latin trans experience, featured prominently in essayists, novelists (Donoso, Lemebel, R.Indiana Hernández, Cabezón Cámara), graphic novelists (G.Hernandez), contemporary anthropology, and documentaries.  Taught in Spanish.
