Matías Beverinotti received his M.A. from the University of Kansas (Lawrence, 2010) and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, 2016). His research addresses the connections between recent narratives of the past and their influence on how political power is organized and legitimized during the South American “Progressive Cycle” or “Pink-Tide” (1998-Present). His current book project explores how new redemptive-historical narratives help to reconstruct hierarchical structures of power and subject formation after the 2000’s popular uprisings in South America, and how new Literature and Film productions shows its exhaustion in order to open the possibility to form new post-modern communities. His focuses include 20th and 21st century South American Literature and Film, Cultural and Political Theory, and Continental Philosophy.
