Joanna Bartow, Associate Professor of Spanish (2001). A.B., Washington University; M.A, M.Phil., Ph.D., Yale University. Dr. Bartow grew up in New York City and exchanged her long-time ambition to become an architect for her love of Spanish and Spanish American writing. After receiving her A.B. in Spanish with a minor in German, she studied for a year at the U. of Cologne, Germany. During her graduate studies in Spanish she spent a year in Mexico City under a Fulbright grant at the Interdisciplinary Women's Studies Program at the Colegio de México. Her current research focuses on 20th-century Latin American women's literature and feminist theories, literary responses to dictatorship, and representations of urban space. Her book Subject To Change: The Lessons of Latin American Women's Testimonio for Truth, Fiction, and Theory was published in 2005. She is still passionate about architecture, as well as cities, art, and music, both Latin American and otherwise.
