Germán Campos-Muñoz

Associate Professor of Instruction of Classics

Germán Campos Muñoz completed his Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at the Pennsylvania State University. His research interrogates the reception and transformation of the Greco-Roman classics in Latin American literature and culture. His book, The Classics in South America: Five Case Studies (Bloomsbury, 2021), proposes a transhistorical study of these receptions by examining five case studies selected from key cultural and political moments of the early and late colonial period, the emancipatory era, and the 20th and 21st centuries. He has also published articles on this topic in venues including Dieciocho, Hispanic Review, and Latin American Research Review. Additional research and teaching interests include the disciplinary histories of the world and comparative literature, and literary theory and criticism.
