Fellowship Work Summary, 2021–22

Juan G. Ramos completed two chapters and worked on sections of three other chapters of his book Andean Modernismos: Affective Forms in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. He coedited a journal dossier “Configuraciones de lo andino” with Jorge Coronado (Northwestern University) for Revista de Estudios Hispánicos (2021), which contains their cowritten introduction “Configuraciones de lo andino.” As part of this bilingual dossier, he published his article “Trans-Andean Modernismos.” During the fellowship year, Ramos coedited a dossier “Sara Castro-Klarén y su legado crítico,” which contains a cowritten introduction and an article that Ramos cowrote with Cristián Opazo (Ponficia Universidad Católica de Chile) entitled “El boom y el oficio: enseñar en clave autobiográfica,” which will be published in the journal MLN (spring 2022). In addition, he wrote two book chapters for edited volumes. The first chapter “Decolonial Terrains and Affective Ecocritics: José Eustacio Rivera, Demetrio Aguilera Malta, and José de la Cuadra” is included in Latin American and Latinx Decolonial Ecocriticisms, edited by Ana Maria Mutis, Elizabeth Pettinaroli, and Ilka Kressner. [Routledge, late 2022]. A second chapter “Resonances of Race in the Global South and the Decolonial Turn” is part of The Routledge Companion to Global South Literatures, edited by Alfred J. López (Routledge, late 2022). Finally, Ramos wrote an article “El gótico andino en la narrativa de Liliana Colanzi, Solange Rodríguez Pappe, Mónica Ojeda y Giovanna Rivero,” as part of the special issue “Escritoras latinoamericanas del siglo XXI,” edited by Luciano Martínez (Swarthmore College), which will be published in Revista Iberoamericana, (October–December, 2022).
