Hi! I’m Alejandro, a 4th year PhD candidate in Spanish and Portuguese. I’m originally from Venezuela, where I got a B.A. in Literature. After college, I lived in Chile for 3 years, earning an M.A in Ethics. My current research centers on visual arts, visual poetry and cinema in Chile and Argentina since the 1960s.

 Most of the time, I can be found at Firestone, working on my dissertation and drinking coffee. I enjoy going to the movies and will host a lot of screenings at Whitman! Don't hesitate to contact me if you want to talk about literature, movies, art, or anything - in Spanish, Portuguese or English!
