The focus of Tania Balderas' research entails the comparative analysis of English, Spanish and French literature through a post-colonial framework, drawing parallels between the literature of the ex-colonies with an emphasis on the stylistic choices of the narration, elements of trauma, violence, resistance, and resilience. Another important component of the research is dedicated to the deconstruction of criticism that seeks to perpetuate imperialist mechanisms of power.
