Latin American and Latinx feminist and queer thought and history, decolonial theory.
Claudia Cabello Hutt is an Associate Professor of Women and Gender Studies and Philosophy. She received her B.A. in Literature and Linguistics with a minor in Philosophy from the Universidad Católica de Chile, and her MA and PhD in Latin American Literature and Women and Gender Studies from Rutgers University.
She is currently writing a book on queer women’s transatlantic networks in the first half of the XXth Century. Through the intersection of decolonial, feminist, and queer theories, this monograph theorizes an unstable, historically censored, and extraordinary queer archive that offers an encounter with the radical illegibility of queer desire, bodies, ways of living, and relationships. This project has received an NEH Summer grant, among other awards.
