Germán Garrido received his Ph.D. in Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Literatures in 2017. His research interests include Latin American literature and culture, transnational/global studies, and queer theory. His current book project, "La Internacional Argentina: las cosmopolíticas queer de Copi, Néstor Perlongher y María Moreno (1971-1992)," explores the aesthetic and political potentials of traveling and migrant queer communities, examining these writers’ literary output alongside their involvement in queer and feminist activism. Germán's essays have appeared or are forthcoming in peer-reviewed journals such as Un Cuarto Propio, Catedral Tomada, and Escena: Revista de las Artes de la Universidad de Costa Rica. He has also contributed book chapters to The Cambridge History of Latin American Women's Literature (Ileana Rodríguez and Mónica Szurmuk, eds., Cambridge UP, 2015) and Fragmentos de lo Queer (Ricardo Manetti and Lucas Martinelli, eds., Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la Universidad de Buenos Aires, 2016), where he published the outcome of an extensive research project on the Argentinean pop art and avant-garde theater group TSE in the late 1960s.
