Elizabeth Hochberg is an Assistant Professor of Spanish. Her research centers on contemporary Latin American literary and cultural studies. She is presently completing her first book manuscript, which examines how the concept of popular power, traditionally linked to Chile’s worker-led land and factory takeovers of the early 1970s, may be applied to the breadth of novels, short stories, comics, and film produced during the politically intense years of Salvador Allende’s Popular Unity government. She maintains that diverse political fictions advocate for expanded conceptions of literacy and pedagogy, as well as for new uses of mass media technologies as educational tools.
Elizabeth’s research has led to the publication of articles on Chilean novels and films by Guillermo Atías, Carlos Flores, and others. She has also written on ekphrasis and interart relations in twentieth-century Mexican literature.
