Dr. Alba Skar completed her B.A. in Spanish at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, and her M.A. and Ph.D. in Spanish-American Literature at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her doctoral dissertation completed in 1997 focused on representations of political violence in narrative from Chile and Argentina. Since that project, she has written numerous articles and book chapters on human rights issues in Latin America, women's studies, and Latino/a literature. Dr. Skar has published two books. The first, Voces H�bridas: La Literatura de Chicanas y Latinas en Estados Unidos is a study of Chicana and Latina women writers in the United States and transculturation. The second, The Inferno: A Story of Terror and Survival in Chile is a translation of a testimonial memoir by Luz Arce, a militant in the resistance and collaborator with the military dictatorship.  Dr. Skar recently published a translation with Duke University Press: Adi�s Muchachos: A Memoir of the Sandinista Revolution by Sergio Ram�rez, former Vice-President of Nicaragua and well-known literary author. She currently teaches courses at Western Connecticut State University in Spanish Language, Translation, Hispanic Cultures, and Latin American and Latino Literatures. Her latest research explores intersections of globalization and representations of Latin American and Latina women in film and literature. She is also currently completing another translation project for Duke University Press on Bolivian social and popular movements from 2000-2005, which led to the election of Evo Morales.
