Research Interests

Foster research focuses on the cultural production of Latin American cities, with emphasis on Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, and Mexico City and with a particular interest in women's history, queer theory, and sexual identities, and Jewish cultural identity. The genres of cultural production with which he basically concerns himself are narrative, film, theater, and photography. Recent books deal with Argentine urban photography and the city of Sao Paulo.Books on Latin American documenary filmmaking and the city of Phoenix were published in 2014, and a monograph on Gender and photography in Latin America will appear in 2014.

Graduate Faculty in Communication research areas: Latin American urban culture, women and gender, queer issues, film studies
