Estelí is a Ph.D. candidate in the Latin American Cultural and Literary Studies program at Ohio State. Her work is framed by an intersectional feminist view of the world. Estelí is interested in the political potential of Cultural Heritage, as it was her entry point to the Humanities and the field where she started working with people from very diverse communities. She is currently writing her dissertation on how Bolivian society conceptualizes Childhood, the political uses it makes of it, and how these discourses affect the lives of children living in the country.
