Rosa Perelmuter was born in Cuba, completed high school and college in Boston, and received her PhD in Romance Languages from the University of Michigan. As Professor of Spanish American Literature at UNC-Chapel Hill, she writes about Colonial authors ranging from Columbus to Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, and teaches about both Colonial and contemporary Spanish American writers. After serving as a Moore Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (MURAP) mentor for over a decade, she became its Interim Director in 2005, and have been Director of the program since September 2006. While maintaining teaching, advising, departmental and MURAP duties, she is forging ahead with her research agenda, which includes the two volume “La recepción literaria de Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz: Un centenario de opiniones críticas (1910-2010),” a collection of essays by ten international scholars who describe the reception of Sor Juana’s works by decade, headed by her introduction; a book-length study tentatively entitled “The Rhetoric of Space in Alonso de Ercilla y Zúñiga’s La Araucana: Nature, Science and Ideology”; and “Jewish Cuba: Culture, Identity, and Community (1920-1960)”: a book-length project combining history, public and personal memoir.
