Lucas da Silva Lopes
Ph.D. student in Romance Studies, Duke University
I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Romance Studies at Duke University. I received my B.A. in Portuguese from the State University of Campinas (Unicamp, Brazil) and my M.A. in Literary Theory and Criticism also from Unicamp. In 2019, I was a Visiting Research fellow in the Department of English at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada through a scholarship from the Emerging Leaders of the Americas program. I have previously specialized in William Faulkner’s portrayal of the American South, with increasing exploration of linkages to the Global South. From 2016 to 2018, I served as a secretary to ANPOLL (Brazil’s National Association for Graduate Studies and Research in Languages, Literature, and Linguistics). My current research interests include Modernism, Marxism, the Frankfurt School, and Latin American intellectual history.
