Diana Aldrete is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Hispanic Studies in the Language and Culture Studies Department at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. She earned her B.A. in Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, her M.A. in Hispanic Literature from Marquette University, and her Ph.D. from the University at Albany, SUNY. Her interest in human rights in Latin American literature led her to a dissertation focusing on the representation of the female body in texts concerning the feminicides in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Her areas of research include contemporary Mexican literature and culture, 20th and 21st Century Latinx/Queer representations in Mexican and Latin American narratives, and transnational feminist studies in Latin America. She is currently working on her first manuscript that expands on her dissertation which examines the questioning of justice in literary texts on feminicidal violence and anti-feminicidal activism in Mexico. 

Diana Aldrete has had experience teaching at different levels of higher education, such as community college, small liberal arts college, and research university. This experience has helped her develop an interdisciplinary methodology in her pedagogies.
