Thinking critically and creatively by employing gender as a primary category of analysis

Associate Professor of Spanish

Specialization: Latin American and Latino Women writers and artists

"Women's and Gender Studies has both motivated and inspired me to study and write about Latin American and Latina women writers and artists, with the objective of rescuing them from oblivion. Since my arrival to Case, WGST has been supportive of all of my initiatives, allowing me to collaborate with several Chilean women writers and poets, which has resulted in the publication of my translations of their works in both prose and poetry. I have also had the support of WGST to organize exhibits of works by Latin American women artists, which have given our students and the greater Case community a better understanding of the role of women in the cultural production of contemporary Latin American society."
