Nagore Sedano Naveira
Assistant Professor, Hispanic Studies
Nagore Sedano Naveira received her Ph.D. in Romance Languages as well as a Graduate Certificate in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies from the University of Oregon in 2019. Prior to arriving at the University of Puget Sound, she also taught at Cornell University and University of Nevada, Reno, where she obtained a MA in Foreign Languages and Literature. Her areas of specializations are Memory Studies, Feminist Affect Theory, Spanish Civil War and Exile, Transatlantic Studies, and Iberian Cultural Studies. Her book project, Gendered Gestures: Voices of Spanish and Basque Women-In-Exile in Latin America, examines the interplay among memory, affect and politics from a transatlantic and intersectional perspective. Gendered Gestures provides a critical account of the ways in which Republican and Basque Nationalist women-in-exile politicize emotion to propose alternatives to the neoliberal political present. Yet it puts Basque and Spanish exiles in dialogue to elucidate the limits that arise from the divergent nationalist ideologies camouflaged in their (anti)colonial transatlantic rhetoric. Nagore’s research interests also include Critical Theory, Basque American Literature, Feminist Pedagogies, and Community-Engaged Learning.
