Alonzo, Juan individual record
Associate Professor

My area of concentration is 20th-century American literature and culture, with specialization in Chicano/a literature and film studies. I am interested in exploring literature and popular culture's engagements with modernity. My current research examines literary and cinematic representation of ethnic identities, from the turn-of-the-century to the present.
