Alice Laurel Driver is an independent journalist, academic, writer and activist based in Mexico City. She walks the streets collecting stories, wearing San Judas t-shirts, and loving graffiti. In 2012 she received a Postdoctoral Fellowship to conduct research on issues related to the ethics of the representation of violence in film, literature, photography and cultural studies at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. She writes about violence against women, feminicide, the representation of the female body, immigration, and poverty with a focus on Ciudad Juárez and the U.S.-Mexico border. She is currently working on her first short documentary film, “If Images Could Fill Our Empty Spaces,” about how photographers Julián Cardona, Jaime Bailleres and Itzel Aguilera represent violence and poverty in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. She volunteers with the non-profit Justiciahable.org to promote issues related to human rights and justice. Her photography was featured in the November 2012 National Geographic and she is a contributor at Women’s Media Center.
