Narratives of Violence Against Women: Wasted Bodies and Deaths that (Don’t) Matter in the Contemporary Literature in Peru and Argentina

The project aims to analyze representations of physical and symbolic violence exerted over women’s bodies in a corpus of literary texts. On the basis of an analytical literary framework that integrates perspectives pertaining to Anthropology and Cultural Studies, my research will be focused on the ways that these writings reveal the mechanisms of possession, consumption, and disposal of women’s bodies, that is, transformed into wasted humans.
