Elizabeth Lagresa-Gonzalez, Penn State

After receiving degrees in Comparative Literature from UCLA and UCSB, Elizabeth S. Lagresa-González obtained a Ph.D. in Romance Languages and Literatures from Harvard University. Her main area of specialization is early modern literature and culture, which she addresses at the intersection of gender, visual and material studies. In addition to peer-reviewed articles published in eHumanista and Comitatus, among others, she has co-authored a book chapter on collaborative approaches to the Digital Humanities, as well as a critical edition and English translation of Bernat Metge’s Lo Somni / The Dream. Her future monograph, tentatively titled, From Renegades to Cannibals: Early Modern Cross-Cultural Encounters, continues to build on her doctoral work by expanding on her interest in the exchange of objects and subjects across national and disciplinary borders. She is a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow at the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Penn State University.
