Eva-Lynn Jagoe, Associate Professor of Latin American and Comparative Literature, holds a PhD from Duke University and an MA from University of Wales, Cardiff. Before coming to Toronto she taught at University of Essex (UK) and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (USA). Her most recent book, Take Her, She’s Yours (Punctum Books, 2019), explores theoretical notions of psychoanalysis, subjectivity and feminism through an experiential first-person narrative. She disseminates her research through creative non-fiction and hybrid prose, as well as more traditional academic writing. Her next book project is on Spanish history, memory, and climate change. Jagoe has been Acting Director of Comparative Literature and of Latin American Studies. She is the co-instructor of the JHI Toronto Writing Workshop and co-organizer of the Banff Research in Culture residency under the themes of “Distributed Intimacies” (2014), “Demos: Life in Common” (2015), “Year 2067” (2017), and “Beyond Anthropocene” (2018).

Jagoe’s first book, The End of the World as They Knew It: Writing Experiences of the Argentine South (Bucknell UP, 2008), examines representations of the South in Argentine and English texts from the nineteenth century to the present, arguing that the narration of this space is formative in the shaping of a collective memory and history of Argentina. She has published in journals such as Discourse, Journal for Latina Critical Feminism, English Studies in Canada, Cinemascope, Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies, and Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos.
