You will have a doctoral degree (or equivalent) in Cultural Studies or Latin American Studies, or a related discipline. You will need excellent skills in analysis of print and digital cultural texts (particularly comics but also other sources) and will also have to trace social networks of people and objects, including via social media, etc., where relevant. You will have experience of archival work, preferably in Latin America. You will be fluent in Spanish and will have an excellent command of written and spoken English.
