Romance Languages and Literatures

Ali Kulez

Assistant Professor, Hispanic Studies


Ali Kulez’s research focuses on 20th- and 21st-century Latin American literatures and cultures. His work examines the relationship between the body, identity, and politics with a particular focus on Cuban, Brazilian, and Argentine cultural production. His current book project, Gastropoetics: Cultural Figurations of Eating in Modern Cuba and Brazil, approaches consumption as a site of critical reflection on biopolitics, cosmopolitanism, and sovereignty. Before joining Boston College, Dr. Kulez was a Harper-Schmidt Fellow at the University of Chicago.
