Natalia’s dissertation explores how the U.S. feminist movements’ turn to constitutional debates during the late twentieth century influenced their political imagination. The project surveys the ways in which rights’ discourse limit the potential for radical transformations.

Her research focuses on the intersection of law, history and political theory. Her areas of interest are constitutional law, gender, political theory, legal history and democratic theory.

Before her doctoral studies Natalia received her LL.M (’19) from the University of Chicago. Previously, she worked in the merger division of the Chilean Antitrust Agency. She received her undergraduate degree in Law (’17) from Universidad de Chile (summa cum laude).
