About Me: I was born in Guatemala. When I was about two years old, a major earthquake in Guatemala left my family and me homeless. My family fled the violence of the Guatemala Civil War when I was five, seeking refuge in the United States. We were among thousands of Central Americans whose lives were directly affected by U.S. foreign policy and the complicity of some of Guatemala’s leaders. I grew up in East Los Angeles, California, quickly learning English and adapting to L.A.'s diverse culture. I attended school in the inner city, dropping out of high school for a brief period of time. I did complete my high school education, despite many obstacles, including temporary homeless. Against all odds, I obtained my diploma and gained acceptance to a small liberal arts college in New England that provided additional academic support to its students. I then transferred to Hampshire College, in Amherst Massachusetts, graduating with a B.A. in 1998. My academic success at Hampshire led me to pursue graduate studies. I earned a Ph.D. in Hispanic Studies from Cornell University, with minors in Latin American Studies, Women’s Studies, and Comparative Literature. For more information on my research visit my website.

Office hours for the Fall of 2018 will be announced when the school year commences.
