BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

María Fernández's research and teaching concern three areas and their intersections: the history and theory of digital and new media art, postcolonial and gender studies and Latin American art and architecture. She is the author of Cosmopolitanism in Mexican Visual Culture (Texas University Press 2014), for which she won the Arvey Book Award by the Association for Latin American Art in 2015. With Faith Wilding and Michelle Wright she edited Domain Errors: Cyberfeminist Practices (Autonomedia, 2002). Recently she completed an edited volume titled, "Latin American Modernisms and Technology" which explores diverse engagements of Latin American intellectuals and artists with modern technologies, mechanical, electronic, digital and imaginary (forthcoming, Cornell Institute for Comparative Modernities and Africa World Press). Her essays have appeared in multiple journals including Leonardo, Art Journal and Third Text as well as in edited collections.
