I am an Associate Professor of Spanish at Wichita State University.
I specialize in contemporary Spanish American literature and culture. My research interests include Transatlantic studies, publishing history, cultural globalization, politics of memory, and graphic novels.
More recently, my research has focused on documenting the history and experiences of Latin@s in Southern Kansas. Between 2017 and 2019 I co-produced and scripted a documentary film on Hispanic cooking traditions and immigration entitled Cocin(ando) Wichita. My next project, Somos de Wichita, is the co-edition of a digital repository and a traveling exhibit of pictures from family collections that will portray the story of Latino families in the city of Wichita in the 20th and 21st centuries.
