Ingrid Brioso Rieumont is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese studying nineteenth to twenty first-century Latin America, particularly Cuban and Brazilian literatures and cultures, slavery and photography, placing time at the center of her reflection.
Her dissertation, The Time of the After, thinks through the tension between the concept of the “end” of political processes and of life and the possibility for something different to emerge, an afterwards. Drawing from enslaved portraiture and literary texts from nineteenth to twenty-first century Cuba and Brazil, she studies scenarios that come to speak of the existence after the end, and force the end to face something unknown or unpredicted.
She is recipient of several awards and fellowships, among them, the 2018 Donald and Mary Hyde Summer Fellowship for Research Abroad in the Humanities by Princeton University Graduate School; the 2018-2019 Goizueta Graduate Research Fellowship from the Cuban Heritage Collection at University of Miami Libraries; and a 2018 Teaching Award by Princeton Graduate School.
She served as a research collaborator for the exhibition Liquid La Habana: Ice Cream, Rum, Waves, Sweat and Spouts and as an invited writer in the book Una pequeña ciudad mexicana en La Habana (forthcoming 2018).
At Princeton, she holds a Lassen Fellowship from the Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS); and is affiliated to the Cuban Research Network; the Brazil LAB; and the Program in European Cultural Studies. She received her B.A. cum laude from Smith College in 2015.
