Sarah Ann Wells, assistant professor of Portuguese and Spanish in Notre Dame’s Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, has long been fascinated by film and media studies and by the modernist period.
Her upcoming book, Media Laboratories: Late Modernism in South America, combines these two interests.
“My book analyzes the shifting relationship between literature and media in the 1930s and 1940s in Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay,” Wells said. “It joins a growing body of scholarship on non-Western approaches to communication technologies, which together shape a truly global understanding of modern media networks.”
