SILVIA BERGER

Silvia Berger was born and raised in Argentina where she received a M.A. in Music.  In the United Sates she completed her Ph.D. in Hispanic Literatures and Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, with a concentration in Prose Fiction and Literary Theory. Her current course offerings at Smith College  include High Intermediate Spanish, Advanced Composition, Latin American Social and Political Issues, and Jewish Presence in Latin American Literature and Film.

Professor Berger’s scholarly interests have focused on issues of memory in literature and art in the Sothern Cone. She is the author of Cuatro textos autobiográficos latinoamericanos.  Yo, historia e identidad nacional en A. Gerchunoff, M. Agosín, A. Bioy Casares y O. Soriano [Four Latin American Autobiographical Texts. I, History, and National Identity in A. Gerchunoff, M. Agosín, A. Bioy Casares, and O. Soriano] (Peter Lang, 2004).

Her recent works on collective and collected memory, both published and presented at learned societies conferences, concentrate on cultural artifacts, literary or otherwise, that operate at the intersections of memory and history.

Professor Berger is presently working on a book-length study on the nature of urban landscapes and their representation in works of literature, film, and visual arts.
