Fernanda Macchi’s area of specialization is Colonial Latin America literature and culture. Her book Incas Ilustrados: reconstrucciones imperiales en la primera mitad del siglo XVIII examines the representations of the ancient Andean empire and its uses during an intense Inca vogue that took place on both sides of the Atlantic. Her current research -funded generously by the FQRSC- studies the Spanish reading of the Latin American Independence wars through the consideration of the early 19th century editions of the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega and the literary and cultural reconstructions of the Conquest at the time.
