Research Focus: Modern and Contemporary Literature in Spanish, Gender Studies Graduate Minor

Background: I graduated from Central College in 2009 with bachelor’s degrees in Spanish and Art and a specialized minor in Linguistics and TESOL.  My studies and research during my MA in Spanish at the University of Northern Iowa focused my inquiries on issues of gender, identity, sexuality, and culture, especially within the scope of the 20th century texts in Spanish.  Having many research interests and travel experiences in Latin America and Europe has influenced my studies on how these questions and texts are important to discourses on Human Rights.
