My name is Neus Torregrosa Parets. I'm from Mallorca, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea that belongs to Spain. I graduated in 2020 with my bachelor's degree in foreign languages at New Mexico State University. A couple of years later, I also graduated from New Mexico State University with my master's degree in Spanish Literature. I worked as an adjunct professor of Spanish at the Department of Languages & Linguistics at New Mexico State University the 2022-2023 academic year. This is my first semester in my PhD program in Spanish Literature at The University of Arizona where I'm also teaching Spanish 102 for the BLP (Basic Language Program). My interests are Latin American Literature, in specific woman's writers such as Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Alfonsina Storni, Gabriela Mistral, Clorinda Matto de Turner, etc. as well as Peninsular Literature with woman's writers such as Ana María Matute, Emilia Pardo Bazán, Rosalía de Castro, among others. Other fields of interest are Literary and Cultural Theory, Siglo de Oro, and contemporary Peninsular literature & studies.
