Dr Eilidh AB Hall is an early career researcher interested in Latinx literatures and cultures. She was awarded her PhD in 2017 from the department of American Studies at the University of East Anglia and is a Teaching Fellow in the University of Aberdeen’s Latin American Studies department. Her interdisciplinary research focuses on feminist Latinx literatures and cultures and she is currently writing a book that explores how Chicanx women negotiate inequalities within the patriarchal institution of the traditional family. She is a Fulbright scholar and went to Texas in to work with Professor Norma Cantú at Trinity University in San Antonio.

She is co-jefa of The SALSA Collective, a multi-disciplinary research community for scholars interested in latinidades across the Americas. ‘Latinidad’ refers to a shared sense of a Latinx identity that does not reduce any similarities between diverse groups to any single essential trait, celebrating both diversity and kinship. The SALSA Collective provides a space where dialogues concerning Latinx cultures, literatures, music, film, history, and politics, and more can take place.
