I am the Academic Director of the Office of International Programs in San Andrés and work particularly on the Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS). I am also a Literature Professor in the Department of Humanities. I did my PhD in Latin American literature at Yale University and my Bachelor of Philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires. I was a professor at Northwestern University and Cornell University. In my classes and research I work in the area of Latin American literature and visual culture. My book Real Literature, Transformations of realism in contemporary Latin American literature, examines the relationship between word and image within literature and how this relationship impacts the representation of reality. I enjoy working with international students in San Andrés because it enriches and diversifies the university space and teaching.

I am a graduate in International Studies from the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella and currently coordinating the outgoing exchanges of UdeSA undergraduate and graduate students.

International education allows one to grow both professionally and personally and from UdeSA we give you the opportunity to venture into this experience!

Sol Marchetti

Student of International Relations

My name is Sol and I come from San Antonio de Padua, Buenos Aires. During the week, I stay at the university’s student dorms and on weekends, I go back home to my family. I've been working in the Office of International Programs since March 2019. Personally, I think that this job is a great opportunity to be introduced into the working world.

 

May Steward

Student of Law

I began working in the Office of International Programs in 2018 and I am very thankful for the opportunity that it has given me to develop myself in a global environment, a perspective with which I strongly identify being bicultural. I personally know how enriching it is to live and study abroad (I lived in the UK several years) so I am pleased to know that I am helping others experience what I did.
