Biography

Fernando Rivera-Díaz taught in several Peruvian Universities before coming to the U.S. to pursue a Ph.D. degree at Princeton University, which he completed in 2006. His research on contemporary Latin American narrative focuses on the politics of the novel, post-identitarian narratives, the constitution of modern subjects, and political violence, with special emphasis in Andean literature and culture. He has recently published Dar la palabra: ética, política y poética de la escritura en Arguedas (Iberoamericana/Vervuert, 2011). At present he is working on a book-length study of the narratives of the Peruvian Internal War (1980-2000).
