FL Dept. Welcomes New Professor

Lina X. Aguirre has joined the Department of Foreign Languages at AU as Assistant professor, and will be teaching courses in Spanish and Portuguese.  She studied economics in Colegio Mayor de Nuestra SeƱora del Rosario in Bogota, Colombia, where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1997.  In 2007 she received her Master of Arts in Literature from the Xaverian University in Bogota and she has recently finished her doctoral studies in Latin American Literatures and Cultures at The Ohio State University.  Her research focuses on contemporary Latin American poetry and visual cultures.  Her doctoral dissertation examined the manifestations of precarity in the artistic practices of young poets and visual artists from Chile.  Particularly, she focused on how globalization and the neoliberal economic regime produce specific types of precarity and how this precarity takes form in poetry, video, painting and multimedia art.
