Mark is an associate professor of Spanish in the Department of Romance Languages here at UGA. He specializes in contemporary Latin American literature and culture, with a focus on the Mexican narrative. Mark teaches both undergraduate and graduate level courses with a wide range from general surveys of Spanish American literature and cultural trends, to specialized courses on contemporary Mexican cultural topics, ecocriticism and disaster studies.  He has published in a wide variety of avenues in both Spanish and English with topics covering the cultural processes of modernity in Latin America in regards to disaster literature, migration and cultural mediations of the environment. His most recent work, and the issue that he will be speaking about during this series, is that of an ecocritical nature regarding the problems that the Amazon River System has posed to nationalistic territorialization and the construction of empiricist subjectivities and the relations between colonialism and the construction of the human/animal divide.
