I teach courses in Spanish language, grammar and composition, Latin American cultures and civilization, Hispanic literature, and Hispanic and world cinema. I have led multiple study abroad courses to both Cuernavaca and Mérida, Mexico, which gels well with my research interest in contemporary Mexican literature and film. My other research interests include contemporary Latin American literature and cinema, with special attention to gender and indigenous identity. 

My book chapter on border crossing in Hispanic cinema, “Embodying Childhood Social Agency in Gustavo Loza’s Al otro lado” was published in Screening minors in Latin American Cinema, edited by Carolina Rocha and Georgia Seminet (New York: Lexington Books - Rowman & Littlefield, 2014). The 1994 Cuban novel La nada cotidiana spurred a recent article, “The Kiss of the Marble Statue: Existentialism and Cuba’s Special Period in La nada cotidiana by Zoé Valdés,” which will appear in Hispanófila in 2015. Examining the construction of indigenous video culture in southern Mexico, my latest project is titled “Ethnology of the Proximate in Chiapas’ Proyecto videoastas indígenas de la frontera sur.”
