Ricardo Andrade is a MA/Ph.D. student in the Department of Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. He holds a BA in Literature and other BA in Communication (summa cum laude, Universidad Central de Venezuela) and was a recipient of the AUIP Fellowship (Asociación Iberoamericana de Postgrado) to pursue his Master’s Degree in Hispanic Studies (Universidad de Sevilla). Ricardo has taught Venezuelan Literature and Writing Courses at the Universidad Central de Venezuela, and also has worked as journalist, copywriter, and editor in newspapers, magazines and agencies of digital communication both in Caracas and Bogotá. Currently, he is interested in strengthening his research skills on Caribbean and Andean literatures, with focus on the work of short-story writers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. He is primarily interested in phenomena related to failure, humor, autobiographical writing, mass media, and spatiality in narratives by Peruvian and Venezuelan authors. Ricardo is also interested in Colonial Literature, particularly in the emerging notions of identity present in certain texts written in the Spanish-American Viceroyalties.
