Sarah Moody received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and is an associate professor of Spanish at UA, where she teaches Latin American literature in the Department of Modern Languages and Classics. Her research has examined modernism and women’s writing in Latin American literature of the 19th and early 20th centuries, focusing especially on the relationship between aesthetic systems and identity formulations like gender or nationalism. Her research takes her to archives in Argentina, Brazil, Peru, and Uruguay, and she has presented nationally and internationally on varied topics related to literature and culture of postcolonial Latin America. Her current book project explores intellectual networks and ideas of feminine aesthetics in modernismo.
