Professor José María Rodríguez-García’s research interests lie in the areas of Spanish political intellectual history and its transAtlantic projections, the literatures of plurinational Spain, the history of lyric forms, and in translation and comparative poetics with special focus on Colombia, Spain and Mexico.  His book The City of Translation: Poetry and Ideology in Nineteenth Century Colombia (2010) was the recipient of the PROSE award.  His current volume in progress is titled “From Revolution to Revelation: A Critically Edited English Translation of María Zambrano’s Filosofía y Poesía (1939).”  Over fifty essays published in American and European journals, from Diacritics to Cuadernos de Investigación Filólogica and Bulletin Hispanique attest to Professor Rodríguez-García’s prolific and wide ranging profile in current intellectual and literary studies.  Professor Rodríguez-García received his PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of Boulder, Colorado.
