Kimberle S. López is an Associate Professor of Latin American Literature in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of New Mexico. In 2002, she published a book entitled Latin American Novels of the Conquest: Reinventing the New World that examines the representation of colonial desire in a corpus of recent Latin American historical fictions that rewrite the chronicles of the conquest and colonization of the Americas. Her recent research focuses on themes such as the relationships among ethnography, history and fiction; cannibalism, colonialism, and commodity fetishism; and international adoption, migration, exile, and diaspora.
