Oswaldo Estrada’s research focuses on gender formation and transgression, historical memory, and the construction of dissident identities in contemporary Mexico and Peru. Relying on postmodern theories and interdisciplinary approaches, he studies multiple representations of otherness, coloniality, ethnic exclusion, and cycles of violence. His numerous articles, book chapters, and notes have been published in Latin America, Europe, and the United States. He has edited several special issues on Latin America’s most recent narratives for Explicación de Textos Literarios, Revista de Literatura Mexicana Contemporánea, and Cuaderno Internacional de Estudios Humanísticos y Literatura. He is the author of La imaginación novelesca. Bernal Díaz entre géneros y épocas (Iberoamericana / Vervuert, 2009), and Ser mujer y estar presente. Disidencias de género en la literatura mexicana contemporánea (UNAM, 2014). He has edited the volumes Cristina Rivera Garza. Ningún crítico cuenta esto… (Eón, UNC-Chapel Hill, and UC-Mexicanistas, 2010), Colonial Itineraries of Contemporary Mexico. Literary and Cultural Inquiries (with Anna M. Nogar, U of Arizona P, 2014), and Senderos de violencia. Latinoamérica y sus narrativas armadas (Albatros, 2015).
