Ceron Canche, Romy Yanahi
Graduate Associate

I graduated with a degree in Latin American Literature at the Autonomous University of Yucatan (Universidad Autonóma de Yucatán - UADY). I completed my master's degree in Hispanic American Literature at the University of El Paso Texas (UTEP), where I also had the opportunity to work as a Spanish tutor for undergraduate students, as well as Editorial Assistant for the Journal of Contemporary Mexican Literature (Revista de Literatura Mexicana Contemporánea). Once I graduated with my master's, I continued working at UTEP through the Optional Practical Training (OPT) Program as an intermediate level Spanish teacher in the Spanish an a Heritage Language Program. 

I am a PhD candidate in Hispanic Literatures and Cultures Concentration and a graduate teaching associate in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. I am Founder of the group The Literary and Cultural Studies Working Group: https://spanish.arizona.edu/graduate/current-students/working-groups-or…. I have participated in different conferences in Mexico and United States as well as in seminars. I was invited as a speaker at HSI/International: Mexican Students @UA Webinar Series organized by Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Initiatives, Mexico Initiatives in UA Global, and Office of Instruction and Assesment (OIA) at the University of Arizona. 

My research interests include 20th and 21st century literary theory and criticism. I am interested in the post-human studies as a paradigm shift in the humanities and its latent effects in our contemporaneity. In addition, I am interested in the relationship between the colonial and the postcolonial studies through the subaltern studies in Latin America. 

I worked as a senior editorial assistant for the Arizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural Studies (AJHCS): https://ajhcs.arizona.edu/ from 2019 to summer 2022. I am currently an instructor of Spanish Language in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese.

Currently Teaching

SPAN 201 – Third Semester Spanish

Continuation of Spanish 101 and 102 or by placement exam. As the first semester of the second year Spanish, this course focuses on a short review of the materials studied in the first year courses. It expands on those points with a more in-depth study of the Spanish language and culture. Content-based approach integrates grammar and culture in a functional use through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The course further develops grammatical accuracy in the use of the simple tenses: present, future, and conditional and of particular importance is the perfection of the use of the past tense: preterit and imperfect. Compound tenses such as the present perfect, past perfect are also developed in this course. Students gain the ability during this course to deal with more complex and abstract situations in the foreign language. Language use encouraged by way of communicative activities rather than a sequence of linguistics units. Audio, video, and computer materials incorporated.
