Carolina Rodriguez Tsouroukdissian

Graduate Student

Carolina is a Phd student in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. She worked as a journalist and editor in Caracas, Venezuela, and published an award-winning short novel for children (Por un pelo). Her dissertation is about short fiction for adults and children in Latin America, between 1820 and 1920. Post-colonial theory and subaltern studies frame her inquiry on the “emplotment” of the nation across generations of readers. Her recent and forthcoming publications engage in issues of feminine subjectivity and the living space of the slave in 19th-century Cuba.
