Sarah Moody’s research examines modernismo and women’s writing in nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century literature of Latin America, especially focusing on the relationship between aesthetic systems and gender or national projects. She has published on Delmira Agustini’s radically feminist poetics, on the journalism of women from Argentina and Brazil around the turn of the twentieth century, and on newspaper chronicles and poetry in dialogue with urban reform in Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. Her most recent articles focus on Eduarda Mansilla’s daring interpretation of a foundational myth of Argentine national identity in the mid-nineteenth century, as well as on the complex gender philosophies in Manuel Ugarte’s early literary work on Paris. She is also interested in Brazil’s relationship to the rest of Latin America, and in literary and journalistic responses to city modernization and to European modernity.
