Biography / Academic Interests :
Felipe Martínez-Pinzón specializes in 19th century Latin American Literature and Culture. His research focuses on the uneasy pairing of nation-building discourses and cultural constructions of territory. Before coming to CSI, he taught Spanish language and Latin American Literature at New York University, and has been a visiting professor at the Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia).

Scholarship / Publications :
Professor Martínez-Pinzón is preparing his first book on the representation of tropical nature in 19th and early 20th century Colombia. More recently his research has focused on reading Mid-19th century Romantic discourses on the nation— national cartographies, costumbrismo and the sentimental novel— from the vantage point of the Gothic genre, ethnography and the war memoir. Martínez-Pinzón has also published two books of poetry.
