Felipe Fiuza is a Brazilian scholar who recently received his Ph.D. in Spanish Literature from Purdue University. His areas of specialization include, but are not limited to, Spanish Literature of the Golden Age (Cervantes), Medieval Spanish Literature (Chivalry), and Latin America Literature (Brazil). He has over fifteen years of expertise as a language and literature instructor, both in the US and in Brazil. His research interests range widely, but he stands in two theoretical pillars: a) carnival, with Bakhtin as a leading theorist; and b) cognitive studies, more specifically embodied cognition and theory of mind. Felipe Fiuza also writes poetry, and in this past April he was a keynote speaker at the Lusophones Studies section at the 70th Kentucky Foreign Languages Conference (KFLC), where he presented his own poetry. Dr. Fiuza has also been engaged in service learning, translation, and interpreting projects. He is the new Director of the Language and Cultural Resource Center here at ETSU.
