Faculty

Fanny Roncal Ramirez, originally from Peru, is an Assistant Professor at Concordia College, MN. She obtained her Masters degree and PhD in Spanish Literature at the University of Iowa. Her dissertation titled Con un pie dentro y otro fuera: el espacio público y privado en la narrativa femenina del siglo XIX, explores the role women writers played in Hispanic American literary history in the second half of the nineteenth century.

She has developed two areas of research: one in Latin American literature, with an emphasis on nineteenth century Spanish American women's narrative from the Andean and Southern cone regions; and a second one in Second Language Acquisition with a focus on the acquisition of culture and the development of second language writing. She has taught Spanish language, literature, and culture at Luther College, the University of Iowa, and Concordia College. She has also taught classes on the acquisition of culture at the graduate level in the Master of Education program at Concordia College, where she currently works.
