I am pleased to announce that a former doctoral student, Dr. Verónica Muñoz, has been appointed new Academic Dean for CEA’s academic programs in Buenos Aires. www.GoWithCEA.com.

This position provides leadership and oversight for all of CEA’s academic programs in Buenos Aires. This position serves as an academic leader for faculty and students and works in partnership with the entire Buenos Aires staff to successfully deliver a positive academic experience for all CEA students.  The Dean also provides oversight in the areas of curriculum and program development, faculty training and assessment, and academic quality control.

Verónica Muñoz received her BA & Licenciatura in Literature from the Catholic University (1994/2002) and taught Classical Latin and Literature at this institution until 2002, when she was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue graduate studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. She earned her M.A. in Comparative Literature (2005) and Ph.D. in Latin American Literature (2010), while teaching Spanish Language and Literature courses at UMD. She first researched on the relationship between jazz music, fantasy, and Julio Cortázar's narratives in her MA's thesis. She then wrote her dissertation, under Professor Aguilar-Mora's direction, on 19th Century Latin American short stories, fantasy, and the role of the uncanny in shaping or challenging identities during nation-building processes. Her areas of interest include gothic literature, philosophy, and politics in Latin America.

As an Affiliated Professor in Argentina, she teaches Latin American Literature of 19th and 20th Centuries, and Cultural Studies at the University of Belgrano and Catholic University. She is also a faculty member at the MA Program of the Spanish School (Middlebury College, VT) and has attended LASA International Conferences since 2006.

Please join me in congratulating Vero for a more than deserved appointment. Way to go Vero!
