FacultyRomance and Classical Studies



María E. Mudrovcic is a Latin Americanist with a specialization in intellectual and literary history.  An important part of her research explores how cultural agents (mainly journals, foundations, and other symbolic clearing houses or taste makers) intervene in the intellectual field during moments of transition and/or reorganization of peripheral cultures such as that of Latin America.  Questions related to canon formation, culture wars and the making of taste, values and reputation are at the forefront of her reading of Latin American cultures in context.
