Daniela’s M.A. thesis, titled “The Displays, Silences, and Aesthetic Possibilities of Museum Fashion's Gendered Geopolitics,” inquired the gendered, racialized, and classed, neocolonial institutional performance of art museums, by studying fashion exhibitions in New York City (2013). During her doctoral program in Gender Studies at IU, she intends to continue her work on affect and post/neocolonial theories as tools for understanding the ways aesthetic practices, popular culture and mass market media represent/construct/organize/subvert individual and collective subjectivities.
