Elizabeth came to the University of Washington to study visual representations of race, gender and sexuality in new media. In particular, she explores the ways in which the Internet provides possibilities for resistance, but not without significant barriers. To do this she analyzes the kinds of online spaces Latinas inhabit, and the ways in which Google search results disrupt or maintain dominant representations of latinidad.
