Bio

Belinda Rincón is an Assistant Professor of English and Latin American and Latina/o Studies.  Her teaching and research interests include Latina/o literature and popular culture, ethnic American and transamerican literatures, nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Latina/o narrative, Latina feminisms, and war literature and film.  She specializes in Chicana/o literary and cultural studies.  Professor Rincón is currently completing a manuscript entitled War, Gender and State Formation: Chicana War Stories from the Mexican Revolution to the War on Terror which examines Chicana writers, artists, and activists whose work on war and militarism critically engage with the histories of war and the militarization of culture and gender relations. She is also working on a second project that examines cultural responses – corridos, memoirs, film – from diverse U.S. Latina/o communities to the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Her article “Media, Militarism, and Mythologies of the State: The Latino Soldier in World War Two Films” is forthcoming in Latino Studies. She earned her BA in English and Women’s Studies from Vassar College, her MA in English from Boston College, and her PhD in English from Cornell University.
