“Hurtado’s conceptualization of enfleshment and her focus on healing in the face of multi-generational colonial violence is a must-read for anyone interested in diasporic narratives.”


-Angela Ginorio, Boricua Feminist Social Scientist, Professor Emerita from the University of Washington, Department for Gender, Women and Sexual Studies

Roberta F. Hurtado


Dr. Roberta Hurtado is the Associate Professor of Latina/e/o/x Literature and Culture at SUNY Oswego, and the inaugural Director of the newly launched Latino and Latin American Studies (LLAS) program at Oswego. She is also the inaugural Fellow of the James A. Triandiflou ’88 Institue for Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Transformative Practice for the Spring 2023-Spring 2024 terms. Her work explores knowledge that emerges from flesh experiences—both on the personal and communal levels, as well as across and between generations—and how it is represented in art as a method to promote healing and liberation. Her book, Decolonial Puerto Rican Women’s Writings; Subversion in the Flesh, is part of Palgrave Macmillan’s “Literature of the Americas” series. It is also a ranked finalist in the 2020 International Latino Book Awards Women’s Issues category. Hurtado’s work has been published in journals such as Label Me Latina/o, Chiricú, and Journal of Critical Latina Feminisms. She resides in Upstate NY where her current research projects include studies in sexuality, Puerto Rican Women’s Literature, and trauma.
