CV

I have been in St. Thomas since 2009. I have taught language courses, Latin American Culture and Civilization courses and co-taught, with Prof. Meg W. Karraker, an Aquinas Honors course titled “Latin American Women in the Zone of Conflict”. My interest is in gender and its representations in Latin American culture. Currently, I am researching how masculinities are negotiated in Argentine film and literature.

I am a member of the Film Studies Advisory Board, the Women’s Studies Advisory Board and an affiliated faculty to the American Culture and Difference to Women’s Studies Programs.
