Mónica Vega-González is a Ph.D. student in the Hispanic Literatures Program at Indiana University. She received her B.A. in Hispanic Studies from the University of Puerto Rico. Also, in her B.A. she did an internship of six months in the University of Salamanca in Spain. She completed her M.A. in Editing and Publishing from the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Mónica is interested in Diaspora and Cultural Studies with a special emphasis in the Southern Cone of the Latin American Continent, and the United States. This is due to her concern about the changes and social phenomena of the world as it converges with the reality of the Puerto Rican Diaspora. Mónica wishes to study dictatorship and exile literatures in consonance with Cultural Studies because this allow her to insert new forms of interpreting literature through different ways of conveying art, reconciling the strategic position of the voices of the marginalized. Mónica loves learning from different cultures and languages, and meeting new people.
