Welcome Sebastián J. Díaz-Duhalde!

The department is very pleased to announce the hiring of Professor Sebastián Javier Díaz-Duhalde as Assistant Professor of Spanish, starting on July 1, 2010. Sebastián, a native of Argentina, obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in August 2009 at the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, where he also obtained his M.A degree in 2005. He studied journalism at the Taller Escuela Agencia de Periodismo and philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires.

He is currently working on a book manuscript on the intersections of writing and images (iconology and iconography) during the War against Paraguay and the Wars of Independence in Latin America in which he investigates the unexplored social commerce of imagery in nineteenth-century Latin America.

Prof. Gómez has been accepted to the School of Theory and Criticism at Cornell University this summer (2010). He will attend the seminar that focuses on "Conformism, Antagonism, Critique: On the Post-Political Turn". It will be conducted by Timothy Brennan from the University of Minnesota.
