Joseph M. Pierce specializes in nineteenth and turn-of-the-century Latin American literature, with interests in queer theory and kinship studies. His dissertation, “Writing and Kinship in the Argentine fin de siglo, 1890-1910: La familia Bunge,” takes a politically engaged, socially influential family of writers as the framework for analyzing a crucial period in Argentine history, underscoring the role of relational subjectivities in forming notions of gender, sexuality, citizenship, and mutual intelligibility.

Since 2009 he has also served as Communications Director and Instructor at La Poderosa Media Project, a nonprofit community-based study abroad program. An article he coauthored, “Programas comunitarios de educación audiovisual como alternativa al servicio-aprendizaje en el extranjero,” was published in the journal Hispania in 2013.

In the Fall 2013 semester he will be teaching:

  • SPN 435 Cosmic Blood: Scientific Discourses in Spanish American Prose
  • SPN 311 Spanish Conversation & Composition.
