Research Summary
Niall H.D. Geraghty is Leverhulme Early Career Fellow and Lecturer in Latin American Cultural Studies at University College London. His research focusses on the intersections between critical theory, politics and contemporary Latin American cultural production. Niall’s first book, The Polyphonic Machine: Capitalism, Political Violence, and Resistance in Contemporary Argentine Literature (University of Pittsburgh Press: 2019), focussed on the analysis of select texts by the Argentine authors César Aira, Marcelo Cohen and Ricardo Piglia written in the period 1979–1998. Together with Adriana Laura Massidda, Niall also edited the book Creative Spaces: Urban Culture and Marginality in Latin America (Institute of Latin American Studies: 2019). Niall has also researched the work of Argentine director Jonathan Perel which explores the politics of memory in Argentina at the turn of the twenty-first century. Finally, his current Leverhulme project involves a radical re-examination of the work of Argentine artist León Ferrari (1920–2013) which explores the interrelations between politics and religion in twentieth-century Argentina, and the potential correlations between contemporary philosophy and liberation theology.
