Amanda Krehbiel

PhD Student
Office Hours:

Amanda recently received her B.A. in Spanish-Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies from Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA. While at Gettysburg, she spent a semester studying abroad in Mendoza, Argentina and a summer interning in Panama City, Panama. Her time in Argentina only increased her fascination with Eva Perón and sparked her interest in the creation and influence of nationalized figures in Latin America (Evita, Bolívar, Che, San Martín, etc). Her other research interests include Southern Cone Literature, Literature of Dictatorships, Latin American Cinema, and Brazilian Studies. In her free time she enjoys cooking, DIY projects, binge-watching Netflix (in Spanish and Portuguese, where she can find them), and spending time with friends and family.
