Brief Academic Biography
My love for multicultural literature, post-colonialism, and feminism grew out of my undergraduate experience at the University of Texas at Arlington. My Master’s program at Texas Christian University has only fostered my growing interest in ecocriticism and ecofeminism in multicultural literature surrounding themes regarding disabilities, and queer studies. As a Chicana feminist, I am interesting in Latinx literature and the representation of the environment and animals. In the process of learning more about graduate studies and my field of interest, I have examined the state of higher education, literature, pedagogy, and found a new love in the digital humanities. My experience in graduate school has increasingly been transitioning from reading scholarship to creating scholarship. When I’m not researching, I enjoy playing with my cats, playing raquetball, meditating through yoga, watching films and TV shows, learning new vegan recipes, spending time with friends and family, and exploring parks and gardens.
