Alba F. Aragón is Associate Professor of Comparative Literature. She teaches courses in Spanish language and Hispanic literatures in the Department of Global Languages and Literatures, as well as courses in U.S. Latino and Latin American literature in translation in the Department of English.
Dr. Aragón’s current research focuses on the significance of fashion and the dressed body in key texts of modern Latin American literature and culture. Engaging in archival research and drawing from the fields of history, social anthropology, critical theory, and gender studies, her work articulates the role of fashion in advancing specific political and artistic agendas in modern Latin America. She has also engaged in literary translation, and some of this work has appeared in anthologies of poetry by Central American women.
