Jorge Marcone

MarconeThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. is an Associate Professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Rutgers University. He researches and teaches ideas and representations of nature--and of the role of humans in such views--in literatures and art from Latin America, and occasionally in Latina/o and Spanish cultures. He follows an ecocritical approach to study the relationships between culture and its natural and social environments in light of current ecological and environmental theories in the Humanities and the Social Sciences (and in the context of current environmental issues, global or local, and movements). He focuses on the rise of ecological and environmental awareness in Latin American literature under various waves of economic globalization and modernization of society--specifically the period between 1880s-1930s and the period that has started since the end of the Cold War--and he pays special attention to discourses on Amazonia and tropical forests. Among his other interests, he directs or supervises summer study abroad programs in Salamanca, Spain, and Cusco, Peru.
