Leticia Alvarado's current book project, "Abject Performances: Aesthetic Strategies in Latino Cultural Production," explores the political contours of Latino abject aesthetic strategies while querying the limited activist convention that sutures representational aesthetics to representative politics. A second project, tentatively titled "Pop-Mormonisms," will research the influence of Latter-day Saints theology on popular culture from the mainstream to the political.
