Originally hailing from Tennessee, Hannah Burdette came to Chico State in 2015 from Pennsylvania, where she earned a PhD in Latin American literary and cultural studies at the University of Pittsburgh (2013) and taught for two years at Lycoming College as Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish. She also holds PhD certificates from Pitt in Latin American Studies and Cultural Studies, as well as an MA from Vanderbilt University and a BA from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro (both in Spanish).

Her teaching and research interests include indigenous literature and social movements, postcolonial and subaltern studies, inter-American studies, migration and mobility, and performance. Her passion for travel and the study of languages have taken her to such places as Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to study Portuguese; Nahualá, Guatemala, to study Maya K’iche’; and La Paz, Bolivia, to study social movements and Aymara. She is currently working on her first book manuscript, tentatively titled Insurgent Poetics: Indigeneity and Cultural Activism in Contemporary Abya Yala.
