The submission of her Performance-Essay “La Morena y el Toro/TORITO: A Mestiza Possibility when Serpent is not the Symbol of Female Sexuality” was accepted as analysis and investigation of the impact of the teaching about decolonial paradigms in the sphere of knowledge and higher education. This seminar is offered through the Center of Study and Investigation for Global Dialogues, in Barcelona, Spain, in collaboration with the Ethnic Studies Program at the University of California, Berkeley.
