Alejandra Lozano

Alejandra Lozano recently graduated from The University of Texas at El Paso with a B.A. in English and American Literature with a minor in Film Studies. She graduated from the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education of Torreón, Coahuila, México in 2012. 

Alejandra’s research focuses on modern independent cinema and its versatility; particularly its ability to portray unrepresented aspects of our society, ranging from class, race, gender, and sexuality. She also focuses on the absence of women within the film industry and the evaluation of gender bias, not only in female characters but in female directors, editors, screenwriters and cinematographers as well. Alejandra was one of 47 UTEP students that received the IME Becas Scholarship for her outstanding academic achievement within her area of study as a Mexican undergraduate in the United States.
