Patricia Anzini Da Costa

Patricia holds a BA in Studies of Languages and Literature and a MA in Literary Studies partially from her hometown Universidade Estadual Paulista - UNESP (Brazil) and from the University of Winnipeg (Canada) where she wrote her thesis on the work of the Brazilian poets from the Fringe Poetry, especially Cacaso, along with a mainly musical movement called Tropicalism, from the sixties and seventies, in Brazil.  She is especially interested in how they raised the question that has been for many the core of Brazilian art: a national identity know as Brazilianess.  Therefore, the intersections between deconstruction and aesthetic representations of the modern and postmodern condition and identity in the context of Brazilian and American Literature are what will surround her future research. She has also taught in the field of Languages.
