In my research master's thesis, I investigated the interplay of masculinities and Loyalism/Unionism in two plays by Northern Irish playwright Christina Reid. This study is available at https://tede.ufsc.br/teses. Currently, in my PhD research, I explore cartographies of desire in artworks from the ongoing aesthetic scene in Brazil (2013 to the present).
