I am a professor with experience teaching a broad repertoire of courses in both Spanish and English at several institutions including private language schools in England, and college level education at Amherst College, the University of Kentucky and Western Oregon University in the United States. I specialize in language, Spanish and Latino literary and cultural studies as well as Equatorial Guinean literature.
I am interested in understanding how the structures of difference operate as well as the processes of legitimization replicate in contemporary societies. My goal is to contribute to our understanding of how cultural forms are mediated by racial practices of representation and discourse in forming individual and collective identities. I have developed a research agenda that engages in interdisciplinary approaches and employs a transnational framework to study topics of race/ethnicity, immigration/diaspora, border, Ethnolinguistics, Hauntology, and Afrohispanism all under the lens of Whiteness in coalescence with several critical theories.
