Lisa researches the aesthetics and politics of modernity in Latin American and Caribbean art, architecture, and visual culture, exploring historical contexts and epistemic pacts that entangle vision with power and knowledge. Her first book Spectacular Modernity: Dictatorship, Space and Visuality in Venezuela, 1948-1958, published by the University of Pittsburgh Press in 2017, drew on her AHRC funded doctoral dissertation in which she analysed an array of visual and spatial phenomena, from vintage newsreel and state propaganda to carnival pageants and military parades. After receiving her PhD in 2011, she taught at universities in Caracas and Leeds, and has worked as a curator and translator, focusing particularly on issues of memory, space, and digital culture. The postdoctoral research she developed at the University of Zurich from 2014 till 2017 sought to expand the repertoire of the modern landscape in Latin America by directing attention to its blind spots: disordered forms of nature, ruination and memory, caused by different types of violence. As part of this project, Lisa collaborated with filmmaker Jorge Domínguez Dubuc to co-direct a feature-length documentary film called Después de Trujillo/After Trujillo (2016), which assessed the spatial legacies of Dominican dictactor Rafael Trujillo (1930-1961) and the cultures of memory and amnesia related to his regime. She is currently co-editing two volumes on culture and politics in Venezuela. She joined the School of Philosophy and Art History as Lecturer in Art History and Interdisciplinary Studies in 2017.
