Biography

Jeffrey Zamostny has been teaching Spanish and Gender & Sexuality Studies at the University of West Georgia since the Spring of 2012. He completed his doctorate in Hispanic Studies at the University of Kentucky (2012) and his bachelor's degree in Spanish at McDaniel College (2007), as well as a Graduate Certificate in Social Theory at the University of Kentucky (2010). At UWG, he enjoys teaching courses across the curriculum in Spanish language, culture, and literature; directing the Minor in Gender & Sexuality Studies; working with first year students in the FLAIR (Foreign Languages and International Relations) Living-Learning Community; and directing summer study abroad in Costa Rica. His research focuses on male homosexuality in the literature and culture of fin de siglo Spain, although he also published on issues of sexuality across the Hispanic world, as well as on contemporary Argentine cinema. His publications appear in such venues as Revista de Estudios Hispanicos (St. Louis, MO), Chasqui, Decimononica, and MELUS. Zamostny is director of Professions, the 28th Annual Interdisciplinary Conference in the Humanities at UWG (October 31-November 2, 2013).
