Graduate Student


Félix Miguel Rosario Ortiz is a writer, editor, and a PhD Candidate in Romance Studies at Cornell University. Prior to Cornell, he received his BA in Hispanic Studies from the University of Puerto Rico (2013), where he focused on the notion of violence and spectacle in Caribbean prose. His current project examines the different theories and concepts of the construction of a self-image, focusing primarily on paranoia, personal writing, and the limits of the Latin American autobiographical genre between the 20th and the 21st century. He has published two poetry collections: «El tiempo ha sido terrible con nosotros» and «También mueren los lugares donde fuimos felices» (first recipient of the Juan Ramón Jiménez International Poetry Prize of Coral Gables).
