Associate Professor, French, Hispanic, and Italian Studies

Jon Beasley-Murray’s research focuses on Latin American literature, culture, history, and politics. He has worked on Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Central America. And he has travelled throughout the region, from Tierra del Fuego to French Guyana. His book, Posthegemony, combines political theory with analysis of Latin American left movements from Peronism to the Shining Path.

Jon also has undergraduate and MA degrees in English Literature, and is interested in Arts One for the ways in which it refuses specialization and forces him to teach outside of his supposed area of particular expertise.
