Carlos Miguel-Pueyo, Director
Carlos Miguel-Pueyo, Associate Professor of Spanish in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures loves poetry since he was a little boy. He was born many years ago in Zaragoza, Spain, where history and art forged his personality. Since early on, literature and poetry became part of his life, and readings. He graduated with a Licenciatura in Philosophy and Letters (Hispanic Philology) from the University of Zaragoza in 1998. After a year studying British Studies at Bradford College, England, he completed a Doctorate program focusing on Golden-Age and Modern (18-20 centuries) Spanish literature. In 2002, he started a Ph.D. program at the University of Illinois-Chicago, graduating in 2007. In 2013, he received another Ph.D. from the University of Zaragoza. Carlos is interested in walking the literary paths of authors and artists through History. Specifically, he studies the common artistic languages of the arts –mainly poetry, painting, music, architecture and film- in dialogue with those of other languages, inside and outside Spain. In terms of moral significance of his work, Carlos is extremely interested in giving voice to those who don’t have one, in History, in Society, in the Arts, in Life.
