MARINA KAPLAN

Marina Kaplan teaches two survey courses of Spanish American literature that concentrate on colonial and postcolonial readings, novels of development, and modernist writings. She also offers advanced topics courses on the Southern Cone (literature from the region of Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Brazil) and on the sixties, and, on alternate years, an introductory course to Latin American film.

Born and raised in Argentina, she lived in several other countries until she settled in New Orleans and earned a PhD in Latin American Studies from Tulane University. At Smith she holds a joint appointment in the department of Spanish and Portuguese and in the program of Latin American Studies. Her research has focused on Argentine literature and history, and she has published on issues of genre in Argentine authors of the 19th and 20th centuries—Borges, Sarmiento, Posse, Mansilla, Cortázar. At present, her areas of interest are the various new approaches to Latin American cultural productions, such as postcolonial and subaltern studies, as well as the space of literature and/or the place of resistance within the changing global world.
