Thomaz received his BA in Language and Literature and his MA in Literary Theory and Criticism from the State University of Campinas (Unicamp). His research focuses on interspecies relations as they appear in Latin American Literature, especially that concerned with agrarian worlds. Working on the intersection between Ecocriticism, Animal and Plant Studies, and New Materialism, he seeks to assess the power and relevance of Art and Literature in the Anthropocene.
