Biography

Gustavo Quintero Lozano is a Postdoctoral Fellow in International Humanities with the Department of Hispanic Studies, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and the Cogut Institute for the Humanities. He teaches courses in Mexican literature and theory, with a focus on border issues. He received his Ph.D. in Romance Studies from Cornell University. His research examines the cultural legacies of revolutionary processes in the Caribbean, Colombia, and Mexico, including its two borders. In his first monograph, he studies how literature and visual culture in Latin America have been a critical tool for insurrectionary movements to delineate possible futures of transnational solidarity and collective action. He argues that the formation of a collective subject depends on the shared perspective of radical futures that profoundly modify the existing tensions of migration and settlement in Latin America.
