Ingrid Robyn earned a Ph.D. in Latin American Literature and an M.A. in Luso-Brazilian Literature at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research focuses on the legacy of the Avant-Garde in Brazil and the Caribbean, with a concentration in Cuba. As a researcher, she prizes an interdisciplinary and comparatist approach to literatures and cultures, beyond national or linguistic borders. She is particularly interested in the dialogues between intellectual history, literature, visual arts and music, as well as the impact of modernization processes in contemporary regimes of perception and representation. She has published and presented several papers on contemporary Latin American manifestations such as the neobaroque and concrete poetry, as well as the literature of the Caribbean Diasporas. Currently, Ingrid Robyn is working on her first book, Rostros del reverso: José Lezama Lima en la encrucijada vanguardista, as well as in the translation of the first anthology of poems by Cuban writer Lorenzo García Vega to Portuguese. She is, above all, a passionate and dedicated professor who enjoys to share with her students, dare them to think beyond their comfort zone, and see them grow intellectually. She is also a poet, as well as the co-founder and an active collaborator of the online literary journal El roommate: colectivo de lectores (http://elroommate.com/).
