Professor Kyle Matthews' research interests broadly include 20th and 21st-century Latin American narrative, with a particular eye for Mexican narrative and essay from all historical eras. These interests also encompass the intersection of history and memory in the historiographical enterprise, Jewish Latin American authors, and modern critical theory. His present dissertation research focuses on the ways bodies are deployed to formulate and question conceptions of the nation in recent Mexican historiographic metafiction
