Dr. Rodríguez-Mourelo, a native of Spain, is an Associate Professor of Spanish at Penn State Berks and serves as Head of the Division of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences. Her research interests focus on the experience of being a minority and how this experience is expressed in literature. Her doctoral thesis analyzed African American autobiography, and her scholarly work evolved toward other groups, such as Afro Hispanics, in general, and Cubans in particular -- especially Cuban writers in exile. Dr. Rodríguez-Mourelo has published a book on this topic, Encounters in Exile, Themes in the Narrative of the Cuban Diaspora (2006) as well as two books of translation, and articles in national and international journals.
