Lucy O'Sullivan

I did my BA at Trinity College Dublin before going on to complete my MA at UCL in London. My doctoral thesis at Oxford, entitled ‘Diego Rivera and Juan Rulfo: Post-Revolutionary Body Politics (1920-1965)’ traces shifting intellectual and artistic interpretations of post-revolutionary nationhood in Mexico through a comparative reading of the bodily imagery presented in the murals of Diego Rivera and the fictional and photographic works of Juan Rulfo. I am a stipendiary lecturer at Christ Church where I teach Translation and Spanish American literature options for the FHS course. I also lecture on Latin American literature for the FHS course in the Faculty. 


“The Politics of the In-Between: The Negotiation of Urban Space in Juan Rulfo’s Photographs of Mexico City” in Creative Spaces: Urban Culture and Marginality in Latin America (London: Institute of Latin American Studies, forthcoming 2018).
