Professor Rey-Montejo’s research interests focus on issues of race, gender, identity, and social inequality in twentieth and twenty-first century Latin-America. She has published and presented on numerous international conferences on topics related to Hispanic Caribbean narrative, Caribbean Diaspora in the U.S, and Afro-Latino studies. Her current research projects are closely related to Hispanic Caribbean cultural representations in literature, film, music and art. She has taught a variety of courses focusing on Spanish grammar, Latin American culture and literature (survey and topic courses), Ethnicity & Multiculturalism, and U.S. Latino Culture and Literature. Additionally, Dr. Rey-Montejo has led several study abroad programs in different locations such as Málaga, Spain (2009); Cuernavaca, México (2010); Seville, Spain (2011); and Havana, Cuba (2014).
