Ximena Gonzalez-Parada received a PhD in Hispanic Studies from The University of Georgia with a focus on Afro-Latin American and Latinx literature. Her research analyses the representation of ethnic and racial identities in 20th and 21st-century Latin American literature, performance, and film. Her current research analyzes how early 20th-century Black intellectuals of the Andean region reshaped ideas of nation and national identity and how contemporary Latin American artists of color continue to re-define geographic and symbolic borders, particularly related to race and ethnicity.
