I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Manhattan College. I received a Ph.D. in Hispanic Literatures from Harvard University. My interests include modern and contemporary Latin American literature; utopian studies, apocalyptic fiction and thinking, alternative modernities; the fantastic, science fiction. My first book, ¿Extranjero en tierra extraña? El género de la ciencia ficción en América Latina, was published in May of 2011. I am currently working on a project on modernity, utopia, the apocalypse and alternative history in Latin American cultures.
