I am a Ph.D. student in Hispanic Language and Literatures in Boston University's Department of Romance Studies. My advisor is Adela E. Pineda and my current research centers on the literary representation of the so-called "degenerate" artistic genius in Latin America. Specifically, I am analyzing the artistic figure of Julián del Casal.
I am originally from Puebla, Mexico. Before coming to Boston, I spent over seven years studying and teaching Hispanic-American literature in several different universities in Mexico and Ecuador. I love teaching, and I am particularly interested in new and effective ways of teaching students about Hispanic culture, particularly in the areas of film, painting, literature, and history.
