I am a M.A. student, currently studying Anglo-American Studies at University of Porto’s Faculty of Arts. Before that, I completed an undergraduate degree in Philosophy at the same Faculty. I have always been passionate about literature, and I have always been particularly fond of American literature. Recently I’ve taken an interest in studying the literary expression of the issues inherent to postmodernity: to name a few, disenfranchisement, “lightness of being”, disconnection from the world.
