Sabrina Vaquerizo González

PROFILE
I studied Translation and Interpretation (English and Japanese) at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and then I moved to Asian Studies at the Open University of Catalonia (UOC). I also hold a master’s degree on Edition and a master’s degree on Chinese and Japanese studies. Now, I am in my second year of the in the Information and Knowledge PhD program at UOC. My research interests are Japanese cinema, gender and media studies, visual culture, anthropology of the body new materialism and posthumanism, and my thesis will propose a critical study of the meaning of body tropes in Japanese post-bubble cinema from 1990-2010 in relation to the Japanese nation. My thesis supervisor is Dr. Begonya Enguix.
