Juana Gamero de Coca

Juana Gamero de Coca taught courses on Spanish language, literature, and culture.  A native of Alburquerque (Badajoz), Spain, she received a doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004 and, just a few months later, was teaching within Middlebury’s Spanish and Portuguese department.  In addition to her doctorate, she held a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh and a master’s degree from New Mexico State University.  Her research interest included 20th and 21st Century Spanish culture and narrative with a focus on gender. 

Gamero de Coca was interested in the connection between literature, her field of interest and discipline and the different social realities that the literary texts intend to grasp.  She is the author of three books: Nación y género en la invención de Extremadura: Soñando fronteras de cielo y barro (Mirabel, 2005), La mirada monstruosa de la memoria (Libertarias, 2009), and Sexualidad, violencia y cultura (Desde Abajo, 2013).
