Dr Axel Perez Trujillo
Axel Pérez specializes in the environmental imaginaries of wetlands and plains regions in Latin American literature and culture. His work draws from both ecocriticism, philosophy, and the digital humanities as it addresses the modes of representing biomes and their underlying epistemologies. He is particularly invested in recovering the intersections between ecology, energy resources, and culture in the Triple Frontier between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay.
