Liz is Assistant Professor in Hispanic Studies at Warwick and a Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London. Her research examines how nature has been understood in the Americas as an object to be consumed, with a special focus on visual culture. Liz specialises in the histories and cultures of Argentina and Chile; her doctoral thesis examined how Patagonia‚Äôs desolate mythologies have been constructed since the late eighteenth century. Her current project investigates how domestic tourism in Argentina and Chile facilitated extractivism and indigenous dispossession in the early 20th century.
