Photo Osiris GomezThe Latin American Studies program at Chico State prepared me for my current endeavors as a PhD student in the department of Spanish and Portuguese at UC Santa Barbara. The variety of perspectives of the faculty in the Latin American Studies program enriched my curiosity as an undergrad. This led me to develop my current research interests in Nahuatl poetry. History and literature are inextricably intertwined, and from my LAST coursework I could not help but see literature through an historical lens.
