Key Researcher

Vera Coleman

Vera Coleman is a Continuing Lecturer in Spanish at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. Her research explores the convergences of gender, class, ethnicity, and the environment in Latin American cultural production from interdisciplinary perspectives drawing on multispecies ethnography, material ecocriticism, and queer ecology. She has received awards for her scholarly work from the Asociación Internacional de Literatura y Cultura Femenina Hispánica (AILCFH), Feministas Unidas, and the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE). Her articles have appeared in the journals Gestos, Confluencia, Letras femeninas, and Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment. She is currently working on a book project titled “Beyond the Anthropocene: Multispecies Encounters in Contemporary Latin American Literature, Art, and Film,” which examines multispecies relationships in twenty-first century Latin American cultural expression while uncovering indigenous and other-than-dominant epistemologies about human-nonhuman entanglements. She is co-founder and Production Manager of the digital humanities project Latam-Films, a bilingual website with critical resources on Latin American women filmmakers.
