  • Senior Lecturer
  • Faculty of Arts & Humanities
I graduated in Philosophy from the Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia) and subsequently came to London to do a postgraduate course in early music at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Following my studies in music, I obtained the MA degree in Area Studies at the Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS). I was awarded the PhD degree from the University of London in 2001. My publications include the monograph Borges and Dante: Echoes of a Literary Friendship (Oxford and Bern: Peter Lang, 2006) and several articles on ethics, poetics, and the history of ideas in Spanish America.
Research Themes
Research Summary
My current research interests are in the field of comparative literature, political philosophy, and the literature of ideas. Current plans for publication include the monograph Utopía y realidad en el ensayo político hispanoamericano. I have also published widely on various aspects of the works of J. L. Borges. I welcome proposals for research projects across a broad range of Spanish American literary topics, including nineteenth- and twentieth-century narrative, poetry, and the history of ideas in Spanish America.
Teaching Summary
I teach an introductory course to Argentinian literature and more specialised modules on the literature of ideas in Spanish America, nineteenth- and twentieth-century political ideologies, and the works of J. L. Borges and J. M. Arguedas.
