Description

Professor Isea specializes in Literary Theory, Spanish American cultural studies, twenty-first century Spanish American literature, and postcolonial novelistic discourse in the Spanish-Caribbean. His first book, Historiografía y ficción en la narrativa de Denzil Romero, is the first major study of the work of that important Venezuelan author, and it covers topics such as race and nation-building in Venezuela. His second book, Figuraciones del hinterland: notas sobre Maracaibo o un breve estudio del Monte y Culebra en Venezuela (2008), consists of eight essays that interpret the cultural, social and economic map of the city of Maracaibo, Venezuela's oil Mecca. The book explores notions of modernity and cultural liminality in Venezuela, one of the largest oil producing countries in the world.
