Personal Statement

My research and teaching interests include the literary and intellectual culture of Latin America during the 19th and 20th century, with particular attention to: the essay genre since the era of independence and its relationship with cultural and national identity; the creation of transnational/ transatlantic networks of writers and intellectuals; the circulation of images, texts and bodies in the context of Latin American modernity (modernidad).
I am currently completing a book manuscript on Chilean writer Gabriela Mistral as a modern transnational intellectual. The project revises the dominant image of Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral (1889-1957) as a primarily literary figure and challenges both an academic and a broader readership to think about Mistral as a major public intellectual who played an active role in key national and transnational debates throughout the first half of the twentieth century.
