Associate Professor, PhD (Duke)
Eva-Lynn Jagoe, Associate Professor of Latin American and Comparative Literature, holds a PhD from Duke University and an MA from University of Wales, Cardiff. Before coming to Toronto she taught at University of Essex (UK) and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (USA). She teaches experimental critical writing, new memoir, creative nonfiction, critical and cultural theory, and Argentine and Mexican cinema, visual art, and literature. Her book, The End of the World as They Knew It: Writing Experiences of the Argentine South, examines representations of the South in Argentine and English texts from the nineteenth century to the present, arguing that the narration of this space is formative in the shaping of a collective memory and history of Argentina. Her forthcoming book, Take Her, She’s Yours, is a series of lyric essays about sex, power, feminism and its limits, self-narrativizing, psychoanalysis, and relationality. Selections of her non-academic writing can be found at evalynnjagoe.com. She has published in journals such as Reviews in Cultural Theory, Cinemascope, Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies, Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos and Revista Hispánica Moderna.
