    Juan Rafael Valdez

    Lecturer

    BioJuan R. Valdez teaches all levels of Spanish and is also a scholar. Until recently his research has focused on the politics of language, paying special attention to the interplay of language and race in the construction of identity and struggles for power in the Hispanic Caribbean and the US. His book, Tracing Dominican identity: the writings of Pedro Henríquez Ureña (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011), was also edited in Spanish and published in Argentina by Ediciones Katatay as En busca de la identidad: la obra de Pedro Henríquez Ureña (2015).
