 Tatiana Argüello received an M.A. in Latin American Studies and an M.A. in Spanish Literature from Ohio University (2010), and a PhD in Hispanic Literatures and Cultures from the University of Pittsburgh (2015). Her areas of specialization include Contemporary Central American Literature, particularly the representations of war and its multiple facets: nation-states, guerrilla warfare, gangs and global wars; Modernist and Avant-Garde poetry; as well as political philosophy and posthuman critiques. Her research proposes revaluations of the paradigm of war in Central American Literature and examines how the elements of these literary works—such as the subjects, entities, spaces, language, and the authors themselves—create the emergence of new relationships, knowledge and political action in their capacities to affect or to be affected while dealing with war.
