Assistant Professor of Spanish
Professor Marroquín Arredondo's main areas of interest are Mexican literature, particularly during the early modern, colonial period, as well as Hispanic intellectual history. His most recent work is a history of the Spanish description of Mexico-New Spain during the sixteenth century as an epistemological process, particularly in its relationship with Hispanic Renaissance humanism. He is also the co-editor of an edited volume about the immediate and long-lasting effects of the Mexican Revolution in the United States in such spheres as diplomacy, politics, and intellectual thought.
