My name is Karla (she, her, ella). I am in the last year of my Ph.D. in Hispanic Studies at Washington University in St. Louis, where I am researching representations of witchcraft in Caribbean culture. I am also the curator in residence at the Center of Creative Arts (COCA), where I enjoy advocating for interactive spaces. If you find me in the museum, let’s talk about how complex Blue and Black is or why I think “Die Hard” is the perfect Christmas movie.
