Edith is a native of Santiago, Chile. She holds a M.A. in Spanish Literature from San Jose State University. She is currently at work on her dissertation on ‘autobiographical narratives from concentration camps: A transatlantic approach’. Her research interests include narratives from the Spanish Civil War and literary works from the experiences of Spanish citizens in Nazi concentration camps. Her cross-disciplinary discussions involves social and individual trauma, historiography and legacy of the Holocaust in Europe, its representation in Latin America, Post-Memory studies, testimonial literature and gender differences present within the narratives of the concentrationary experience. Her investigation pays particular attention to the autobiographical corpus that emerged from concentration camps experienced in Chile during its military dictatorship (1973-1989).

She is also interested in the indigenous languages and cultural memory of the people of the Andean region of South America.  In 2012 she was awarded a fellowship to study Quechua in Cusco, Peru. She now continues studying Quechua on her own.
