More about Nancy
My main teaching interests: Mexican literature and culture, Mexican-American lit and culture, 20th c. Latin American narrative.
I teach a literature class to low-income Latina women here on campus each week (the women come from an organization called "Adelante Mujeres"). Pacific students are welcome to come to classes and participate in the discussions. To visit the Adelante Mujeres website click here.
I also take Pacific students enrolled in SPAN 367/467 to a small town in Mexico each May where we work in the local elementary schools and learn about Mexican culture. For more information on this class, click here click here.
