Biographical Sketch


Jesús J. Hernández received his PhD from the Department of American Studies and Ethnicity in August 2012. His research areas include 20th Century U.S. Ethnic Literature and History, Cultural and Political Theory, and Latina/o Studies. His dissertation, Bastard Diasporas: Illegitimacy, Exile, and U.S. Cuban Cultural Politics, is an interdisciplinary study of the ways in which the experience and condition of U.S Cuban exile is structured by notions of abjection, disavowal, and failure through narratives of illegitimate familial relations.
