Emily Hind’s book Dude LitMexican Men Writing and Performing Competence, 1955-2012, will be published in spring 2019 with the University of Arizona press. She has published three other books: one about 20th- and 21st-century Mexican women intellectuals and two books of interviews, and she completed a Fulbright award to teach and study with the Universidad Veracruzana in Xalalpa, Mexico in June 2015. Her interest in Mexican children’s and YA literature has led her to develop a new book project of interviews with key writers and editors in the field of LIJ (Literatura infantil y juvenil). Hind won the 2005 Feministas Unidas Essay Prize with an article on Rosario Castellanos, published in Letras Femeninas. She has written numerous articles on Mexican literature and film, with concentrations on topics such as disability studies, children’s literature, pirates and celebrity culture, and the genre of the essay. Living writers studied in her recent projects include Julián Herbert, Carlos Velázquez, Carla Faesler, Alberto Chimal, María Baranda, María Rivera, Guadalupe Nettel, Vivian Abenshushan, Mario Bellatin, Sabina Berman, Carmen Boullosa, Bernardo Esquinca, Guadalupe Loaeza, Cristina Rivera Garza, and many more. Her current articles contemplate the intersection of fast and slow violence, and ask whether the “narco” can include petroculture under the rubric of dark ecology.
