Carolina's interests lie in the intersection of decolonial theory and migration studies, particularly as it relates to the production of immigrant illegality in the United States. Specifically, she examines how the colonial history of New Jersey influences current anti-immigration legislation in the state, while conducting ethnographic and organizing work with the undocumented Latin American community in Freehold, New Jersey.
Carolina is a collective owner, editor and translator of Sangria Legibilities, a bilingual publishing house based in New York City and Santiago de Chile. She absolutely loves teaching and believes it's an important form of activism, and in her spare time she works on her dream of one day becoming a serious DJ. Aníbal Quijano, Édouard Glissant, Sylvia Winter and Gilles Deleuze all blow her mind.
