Constanza Salazar is currently a PhD student in the History of Art at Cornell University. Her research focuses on expanding the traditional boundaries of the discipline of art history by incorporating new interdisciplinary theoretical paradigms that explore the intimate relationship between new media art, and critical theory. Her current work includes renegotiating the concepts of identity, embodiment, affect, and performance to uncover new ways of conceptualizing “the body” and “otherness” in relation to space, borders, and technologies towards the possibility of resistance. Salazar completed her schooling in Canada. She holds a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Waterloo, and completed her M.A. in Art History at the University of Guelph. Salazar has presented papers internationally which examine the theories of new materialism, speculative realism, and new ontology within contemporary art and critical theory.
