M.A. and Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania
I have taught in the Haverford College Spanish Department since 1987, when I was appointed Lecturer. In 1992 I became an Assistant Professor. I started teaching in Argentina at the High School level and from 1977 on I taught, as an Instructor, while completing my studies at Rice University, the University of California at San Diego, and the University of Pennsylvania. I finished my Ph.D. at Penn with a dissertation on the New Historical Latin American Novel. I focused on the novels of Argentinean writer Abel Posse.
