Contemporary Debates on Gender and Sexuality in Latin America

Wed, March 21, 2018

Ileana Rodríguez is Distinguished Professor Emeritus in Latin American Literatures and Cultures at the Ohio State University, and she is also affiliated with the Instituto de Historia de Nicaragua y Centroamérica (IHNCA).

Her areas of research fall within Latin American literatures and cultures, more precisely post-colonial theory and feminist and subaltern studies, with a focus on literatures from Central America and the Caribbean. The aim of her work is to comment on gender and ethnicity and reveal how language reflects the state of politics and society in Latin America.

She has authored several books on subalternity, postcoloniality, and gender violence. Some titles are: Gender Violence in Failed and Democratic States. New York: Palgrave, 2016; Hombres de empresa, saber y poder en Centroamérica: Identidades regionales/Modernidades periféricas. Managua: IHNCA, 2011; Liberalism at its Limits: Crime and Terror in the Latin American Cultural Text. Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 2009;Transatlantic Topographies: Island, Highlands, Jungle. Minneapolis y Londres: University of Minnesota Press, 2005; Women Guerrillas, and Love: Understanding War in Central America. Minneapolis y Londres: University of Minnesota Press, 1996; House/Garden/Nation: Space, Gender, and Ethnicity in Post-Colonia Latin American Literatures by Women. Durham y Londres: Duke University Press, 1994; Registradas en la historia: 10 años del quehacer feminista en Nicaragua. Managua: Editorial Vanguardia, 1990.
