Santiago, Ana Maria

Ana Maria Santiago (M.A., University of Alabama at Birmingham, 2011) specializes in multicultural 20th and 21st century American Literature, though she is also interested in young adult literature, post-colonial theory, sociology, and cultural studies. She is particularly interested in the ways in which race, class, and gender overlap. She wrote her thesis, “Rituals of Resistance in Contemporary Latino Fiction: Queering Masculinity, Matrimony, and Motherhood in the Works of Junot Díaz and Nicholasa Mohr,” on the intersections of gender, sexuality, maternity, and class in contemporary Latino literature. She teaches freshman composition and literature survey courses.
