Lesdi C. Goussen Robleto


Lesdi C. Goussen Robleto is a Ph.D. student in the History of Art Department at the University of California, Berkeley. Her work focuses on the historical and contemporary conditions of Central American art with an emphasis on women artists practicing during the tumultuous period of the Central American crisis in the late twentieth century. By looking closely at both the inter-war and post-war years, she explores artmaking as an embodied practice of resistance, refuge and social critique. Her research engages with women of color feminisms, Latin American and Latinx studies, postcolonial theory, and decolonial thinking.
