My name is Victoria and I am a student of the MSc program from Argentina. I did my undergraduate in Humanities at Universidad de San Andrés, where I developed an interest in Latin American literature and Art but also a passion for political philosophy. I have found that philosophy can be a great theoretical framework for the construction of an innovative study of literary works and other cultural productions, and this study can be key in the understanding of a society, or a country’s, cultural identity. In fact, my research is focused on a study of Argentine literature from the philosophy of bio-politics. In a world faced with an environmental crisis, it may be time to revise the stories we tell ourselves - the ones we have deemed successful and timeless - and how animal figures and nature make their appearances in them.
I hope my time in Oxford will provide me with new and better tools to further my analysis of the culture back home, in Argentina.
