Dr. Marta López Luaces was on sabbatical during Spring 2022. She dedicated her time to doing research on the crisis of femicide for the novel she is currently writing, Urbanization X. She spent four months in Argentina investigating Latin America feminists’ point of view on gender violence and different proposals to end the femicide crisis around the world. She also published a poetry book in Argentina entitled Después de la oscuridad and gave a lecture on literary translation at the Biblioteca Nacional de Buenos Aires. Additionally, she reviewed the translation of her book of poetry, Architects of the Imaginary, translated by G.J. Racz, which will be published by Gival Press in October.
