I received my Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the Université de Montréal in 1996 and did a postdoctoral research on Latin American literature at the University of Toronto in 1996-1997. From 1998 to 2000, I was Assistant Professor at the University of Calgary, where I hold an Adjunct Professorship.

  

I am the author of L’irruption des autres (2000), as well as of around 15 conference proceedings and 35 peer-reviewed chapters and articles in Spanish, French and English (on semiotics, hermeneutics, cultural studies; on Peruvian, Latin American, Latin-Canadian, West Indian, Spanish, and French literatures) in collective works and refereed academic publications from Canada, Chile, Cuba, France, Great Britain, Italy, Peru, Poland, Spain, and the United States, as Hispanic Issues, Versus. Quaderni di Studi Semiotici, Semiotic Inquiry, Multitudes, Tropelías: Revista de Teoría de la Literatura y Literatura Comparada, Canadian Review of Comparative Literature, Oralidad: para el rescate de la tradición oral de América Latina y el Caribe (published by UNESCO), and some others. I am a member of the Editorial Boards of Entrehojas: Revista de Estudios Hispánicos, the Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos, the Canadian Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Studies and the Cahiers des imaginaires, and served as Vice-President (2003-2004, 2006-2007) and President of the Canadian Association of Hispanists (2004-2006).


In 2014, I was honoured by the  Concordia Council of Student Life (CSSL) with one Outstanding Contribution Award,  thanks to the nomination made by the Hispanic Studies Graduate Student Association.
